MIAMI – Anthony Rizzo continued his remarkable debut with the Yankees with another key hit and New York completed a three-game sweep with a 3-1 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
The partisan New York crowd in Miami finally got to cheer when the Yankees had an eighth-inning rally highlighted by RBI singles from Rizzo and Aaron Judge.
Rizzo singled home Brett Gardner for the game-tying run in his third game with the Yankees.
The first baseman was acquired in a trade from the Chicago Cubs at the trade deadline and hit a homer in each of his first two games with New York before Sunday’s clutch hit.
Sandy Alcantara pitched a gem for Miami in the loss, giving up just two hits over seven innings while striking out 10 Yankees.
