Yankees Rally To Take Season Opening Series From Champion Nationals

Gleyber Torres Luke Voit

Gleyber Torres homered in the seventh to start a comeback and delivered a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth as the New York Yankees came back to beat the Washington Nationals 3-2. New York took two of three games in the season-opening series.

The Yankees trailed 2-0 entering the seventh Sunday before the Nationals’ bullpen blew the lead. Washingon lefty Patrick Corbin retired New York’s first 11 batters and 18 of the first 19. But with one out in the seventh, Torres took Corbin deep on a first-pitch fastball to make it 2-1. Will Harris then surrendered a tying homer to Luke Voit.
