Aaron Hicks opened the scoring with a two run home run in the bottom of the first. Later in the bottom of the fourth inning, the Yankees hit back-to-back home runs Miguel Andujar hit a two run home run and Neil Walker followed that up with a solo home run to put the Yankees up 5-1.

In the following inning, Giancarlo Stanton hit a solo home run which was the hardest hit of the season at 121.7 mph. In the bottom of the sixth inning Neil Walker hit his second homer of the night to put the Yankees up by the final score of 7-3.

J.A. Happ earned his 12th win of the season and his second as a Yankees, as he went six innings and only gave up three runs while striking out nine.

Andujar went 2-4 with one home run and two RBIs while Walker went 2-4 with two home runs.

Masahiro Tanaka will get the start tomorrow night as the Yankees look to extend their winning streak to five wins.
