"It was heads-up by Pham", New York manager Aaron Boone said. Schwarber followed with a two-run, bloop double to the opposite field in left to give the Cubs a 3-1 lead before Baez chased Giolito from the game with a two-run double one batter later.

Sabathia went a season-high seven innings, giving up three runs and seven hits.

Aaron Hicks had tied it at 3 in the top of the ninth for the Yankees, homering on a 2-2, two-out pitch from Colin Poche (2-1). Nationals 6, Royals 0 Max Scherzer won his seventh straight start with seven scoreless innings and stole his second career base, while Kurt Suzuki hit a two-run homer as host Washington beat Kansas City.

"Good to see the guys respond", Rays manager Kevin Cash said.

Travis d'Arnaud opened the game with a double and scored when Pham easily reached second as nobody covered the bag. Morton struck out 12, including six straight at one point, and finished the game by fanning 10 over his last four innings.

Torres, 22, is slashing.298/.365/.543 with 19 home runs and 50 RBIs for the first-place Yankees in his second Major League Baseball season.

NY optioned INF Mike Ford to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Friday night's game. He struck out swinging on a 93 miles per hour fastball from McKay with two on to end the fifth.

In the minor league game, McKay got a grounder from Judge and struck him out. In the final season of his 19-year career, Sabathia will be recognized for his contributions to the game and longtime service to the community.
