Yankees Walk-off Against Reds

NEW YORK (AP) - Jacoby Ellsbury got four hits and scored the winning run in the ninth inning on Brian McCann's pop-fly single that dropped among three Cincinnati Reds in shallow right field, giving the New York Yankees a 3-2 victory Sunday.

Ellsbury and Derek Jeter each had an RBI single for the Yankees, who finished a three-game sweep in their first series after the All-Star break. Hiroki Kuroda outpitched Cincinnati ace Johnny Cueto and left with a 2-1 lead before Todd Frazier's tying homer off Dellin Betances in the eighth.

Ellsbury also stole two bases and made a sliding catch in center field that saved a run. He reached safely all five times up, including a leadoff single in the ninth off Aroldis Chapman (0-3).

Before that, left-handed hitters had been 1 for 18 with 12 strikeouts against the hard-throwing Cuban this season.
