In Esmil Rogers first (and possibly only) start for the Yankees, he went five brilliant innings and was backed up by the Yankees offense, with ultimately the Yankees winning 10-6 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
The Yankees put up a five-spot in the first inning on a Carlos Beltran RBI single, a Chase Headley bases loaded walk, a RBI single by Stephen Drew and an infield single by Martin Prado, which ultimately scored two runs due to an error. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Beltran delivered the big blow, hitting a grand slam before Stephen Drew grounded into a force out to plate the 10th and final run of the game.
Esmil Rogers went five innings, giving up a run on four hits and striking out three. David Huff gave up a run on three hits after facing two batters, Shawn Kelley gave up four runs on two hits after facing one batter, Adam Warren gave up no runs in 1.1 innings, Rich Hill threw one pitch to get a double play to end the eighth and Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless ninth.
