Miguel Gonzalez pitched into the ninth inning and the White Sox hit a pair of homers in a 4-1 victory over the Yanks in the Bronx. Leury Garcia provided the game's first run in the third by turning on a 1-0 fastball and cranking it over the wall in right center, but Severino made offense hard to come by afterward.
His fastball was also the sharpest it had been all season.
Yankees: SS Didi Gregorius (strained right shoulder) lined a single to center and struck out against RHP Nick Rumbelow (Tommy John surgery) in a simulated game. Wei-Yin Chen worked seven innings of the combined one-hitter as Miami blanked the Mariners, 5-0.
The bats were still swinging in the second, when Aaron Judge continued to stay hot with a handsome piece of hitting, lining a rope single to right.
Maybe he broke Statcast's home run tracker.
Kevin Pillar had three hits for the second straight game and stole two bases as the Blue Jays won for the third time this season and improved to 2-6 on their homestand.
Adam Duvall belted his first career grand slam and Joey Votto hit a two-run shot in Cincinnati's 9-3 pounding of Baltimore. Regression to normalcy! The first few starts were not ideal but he will be just fine. The Yankees have the major leagues' best home winning percentage since July 17, 2016, at.702 (33-14).
Johnson (1-0), promoted Tuesday morning from Triple-A Pawtucket, gave up four runs and seven hits and struck out six in five innings. Judge led off with a single and Bird hit a double into the left-center to make it runners on second and third. Severino retired 18 of his first 19 batters and allowed a third inning home run to Leury Garcia. Atlanta scored a ninth-inning run against Blake Treinen and had the bases loaded with one out before Shawn Kelley came on for his first save. Chase Headley blasted a 93 miles per hour heater way out right-center to put NY up 2-0 in the first, Austin Romine kickstarted a two-run second by staying with a sinking curve for an RBI single to center, and the Yankees never got even a momentary reason to look back. His fourth-inning double off Tanaka would have gone for a solo home run in most ballparks.
Nolan Arenado homered twice and had three RBIs to send Colorado past the Dodgers, 4-3 in Los Angeles. Cabrera also went deep on his birthday in 2010 at Seattle.
Andriese (1-0), who had lost seven of nine decisions dating to last June 25, allowed one run and four hits over six-plus innings. Shelby Miller scattered four hits over 7 1/3 innings as the Diamondbacks dealt the Padres their fifth straight loss.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Matt Andriese outpitched Michael Fulmer, Tim Beckham hit a two-run homer, and Tampa Bay toppled Detroit. "I'll come back the day after tomorrow and put work in to get better".
Quintana (0-3, 6.75) is scheduled to start against Corey Kluber (1-1, 6.38).
Andrew Triggs three-hit Texas over six innings as the Athletics doubled up the Rangers, 4-2 in Oakland.
Adam Rosales hit a two-run home run and Khris Davis added a sacrifice fly as part of a four-run sixth that gave the A's their first win in five games.
The two homers were strikingly similar, line drives to straightaway right field that landed on the protective netting above seats just behind the fence.
Starling Marte has received an 80-game suspension from Major League Baseball after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.
