The New York Yankees rallied for a 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers to prevent a three-game sweep in a series that was seen as a possible World Series preview.

Judge hit his major league-leading 24th home run in the game, while Cabrera also contributed with a home run off the right-field foul pole.

Teoscar Hernández had an impressive performance for the Dodgers, hitting his third homer of the series and driving in three runs. Despite Hernández’s efforts, the Dodgers were unable to come out on top. Both starting pitchers, Luis Gil for the Yankees and Tyler Glasnow for the Dodgers, had solid outings with Gil earning the win and Glasnow taking the loss. Clay Holmes pitched the ninth for the Yankees, securing his 19th save in 22 chances.

In terms of injuries, Juan Soto missed his third straight game for the Yankees due to forearm soreness, but could return to the lineup soon. On the Dodgers’ side, Max Muncy, Dustin May, and Brudsar Graterol are all dealing with injuries. RHP Gerrit Cole for the Yankees is working his way back from right elbow nerve pain and had a successful rehab start for Double-A Somerset.

In their next games, the Yankees will send LHP Carlos Rodón to the mound against the Kansas City Royals, while the Dodgers will have LHP James Paxton starting against the Texas Rangers. With both teams looking to maintain their positions in the playoff race, these upcoming games will be crucial for their postseason aspirations. The series between the Yankees and the Dodgers was highly anticipated and lived up to the hype with exciting performances from both teams.
