Yankees RHP Luis Severino threw his sixth straight quality start as he led the Yankees to a 6-2 win over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
Severino (6-1) struck out seven batters and allowed one run and five hits in six innings, as he improved to 4-0 in his last six starts and the Yankees improved to 19-3 in their last 22 games.
"All-in-all, for not necessarily having his best stuff, to be able to hold them to one run, you love to see that out of your ace." manager Aaron Boone said, according to the New York Daily News' Justin Tasch. "Proud of his effort on not necessarily his best day. That's why he's become a really special pitcher."
