Just over 48 hours before the Tuesday MLB trade deadline, the Yankees got a reminder that despite their best-in-the league record and having all but clinched the American League East, they can get better.
Royals catcher Salvador Perez went down and got a sinker to hit the first home run of the season off closer Clay Holmes for a come-from-behind 8-6 upset of the Yankees at the Stadium.
It was the first loss in four games for the Yankees (69-34) and their first loss to the Royals (40-62) this season, going 6-1 overall. DJ LeMahieu homered for the second straight game, his first time homering in back-to-back games since 2020. Anthony Rizzo hit his 25th of the season, giving him seven seasons where he hit at least 25 in his career. It was the first time since 2019 he’s hit 25.
