He parents won for the fourth time in five games after a 2-11 run and split the yankees a third straight loss. New York was led by bench coach Carlos Mendoza as coach Aaron Boone served a one-game suspension for his heated ejection in Thursday’s 3-1 loss to Baltimore.
Joe Musgrove (2-2) allowed one run and six hits in 6 1/3 innings and avoided a third straight loss. In his first appearance in New York since he combined for a hit against the Mets in Game 3 of the NL wild-card series, Musgrove struck out six and walked none.
Soto also doubled in the ninth and scored on Rougned Odor’s single.
New York’s Randy Vasquez (0-1) allowed two runs and four hits in 4 2/3 innings in his major league debut. He was called up because Domingo Germán is still serving a 10-game suspension for use of sticky substances and the yankees wanted to give Luis Severino one more day after his season debut
Anthony Rizzo hit an RBI groundout for the yankeeswho will be looking to avoid a season-high fourth straight loss on Saturday.
Musgrove retired the first 11 batters before back-to-back singles by Rizzo and DJ LeMahieu put runners on first and second. Harrison Bader then grounded on a fielder’s choice to end the play.
After Vasquez grazed Jake Cronenworth, Soto fouled a 1-0 shot with his left knee and stayed inside after limping and being checked. He finished the at-bat by hitting a 3-2 432-foot cutter to the second deck in right field for his 10th home run.
After Ron Marinaccio took out Brandon Dixon first, he walked Austin Nola. On the next pitch, Tatis hit a 439-foot changeup to the bottom rows of the second deck in left field for his eighth home run since he returned from an 80-game PED suspension.
New York threatened in the bottom half of the sixth, but settled for Rizzo’s groundout with runners on second and third. Musgrove stranded Aaron Judge in the third when Tatis ran in from right field to catch a LeMahieu foul ball near the stands.
Steven Wilson replaced Musgrove after Anthony Volpe’s infield single and held the three-run lead by retiring Isiah Kiner-Falefa and pinch-hitter Jake Bauers. Wilson also pitched a scoreless eighth before Josh Hader finished.
