LeMahau's clutch homer gives Yankees first series win of July

LeMahieu NEW YORK — Yankees third baseman DJ LeMahieu will be the first to tell you he’s been inconsistent in the batter’s box this season. Going into Saturday’s game, he hit the slash of .83/.83/.232 in 83 games.

But his seventh-inning home run brought back memories of his early days in New York, Saturday afternoon in the Yankees’ 5-2 victory over the Royals at Stadium Stadium. The Yankees won their first series in July by winning their first two games against Kansas City.

When LeMahau faced right-hander Carlos Hernand, the score was tied at 2 for the lead in the seventh. LeMahau completed the count and then smacked the ball over the right-center field wall to give New York a one-point lead. It was LeMahau’s eighth homer this season.

The Yankees extended their lead when Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run homer off right-hander Dylan Coleman in the eighth.
