The Yankees could not complete the three-game sweep, falling to the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 on Sunday afternoon.
Here are five things to know from Sunday's game...
1. Carlos Rodon, coming off of one of his best starts when he struck out nine over 5.0 innings against the Red Sox, got off to a good start in this one as well. After holding the Pirates scoreless for the first two innings, a leadoff double and a Liover Peguero single gave Pittsburgh the first run of the day.
In the fourth, Rodon got Ke'Bryan Hayes swinging for the lefty's 1000th career strikeout.
The lefty was once again on his game, striking out 10, but he allowed Pittsburgh to re-take the lead in the seventh on a pair of doubles, with a Jason Delay two-bagger giving the Pirates their go-ahead run. Delay's double looked like a routine grounder to third, but the bouncing ball hit the bag and careened into foul territory.
It was a frustrating end to a good start for Rodon, who allowed three earned runs on six hits over 6.2 innings while striking out 10 without a walk.
2. Miguel Andujar, the former Yankee who finished as runner-up in 2018 AL Rookie of the Year voting, exacted some revenge in the bottom of the fourth, tagging Rodon for a solo homer. The former Yankees prospect was claimed off waivers by the Pirates last September.
3. The Pirates went with Colin Selby as an opener, and he gave them two shutout innings. Andre Jackson then kept the Yanks shutout for three innings, but they finally got on the board in the sixth on a DJ LeMahieu RBI double down the line.
4. Anthony Volpe knotted things up in the seventh inning, tagging a hanging Jackson slider deep over the wall in right center. Volpe continues to make a name for himself as a rookie, as he now has 21 big flies on the season to go along with 24 steals.
Clarke Schmidt will start against Toronto on Tuesday, while the Blue Jays have not announced a starter. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
