Carlos Rodon threw seven solid innings, leading the New York Yankees to a 4-2 win against the host Kansas City Royals on Monday.

The game featured two key lineup changes for the Yankees: Juan Soto returned from a three-game absence caused by left forearm inflammation, and he went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run as the designated hitter. Aaron Judge got his first day off of the season.

Rodon (9-2) allowed a run on five singles to win his seventh consecutive start, extending the best stretch of his career. Michael Tonkin earned his first save of the year with a scoreless ninth.

Kansas City's Seth Lugo (9-2) yielded four runs in seven innings. Hunter Renfroe left the game in the fifth inning with a fractured left big toe.


Orioles 5, Rays 2

Ryan O'Hearn recorded three RBIs and Gunnar Henderson homered and scored three runs as Baltimore made history with a win over Tampa Bay, completing a four-game sweep in St. Petersburg, Fla.

O'Hearn and Henderson each finished with three hits as Baltimore earned its first-ever four-game sweep of Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field. Orioles starter Corbin Burnes (7-2) allowed two unearned runs and five hits across seven innings.

Alex Jackson hit a two-run shot and Yandy Diaz had two of Tampa Bay's five hits. Rays starter Ryan Pepiot (4-3) yielded four runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out nine without issuing a walk.

Twins 5, Rockies 0

Royce Lewis blasted a two-run homer, Chris Paddack tossed 6 1/3 strong innings and Minnesota pulled away for a win over Colorado in Minneapolis.

Paddack (5-3) scattered six hits, walked none and struck out six. Carlos Correa and Christian Vazquez each doubled and drove in a run for the Twins.

Rockies right-hander Dakota Hudson (2-8) took a hard-luck loss after giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits in 6 2/3 innings. Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 to lead Colorado at the plate.

Brewers 3, Blue Jays 1

Colin Rea pitched seven strong innings, Jackson Chourio and Willy Adames homered and Milwaukee defeated visiting Toronto.

Adames added a single and a sacrifice fly for Milwaukee in the opener of a three-game series. Rea (5-2) allowed one run and three hits to go along with four strikeouts and no walks in his longest start of the season.

Alejandro Kirk hit a solo home run for the Blue Jays, who are 2-2 on a six-game road trip. Spencer Horwitz had two of Toronto's four hits. Jose Berrios (5-5) gave up three runs, five hits and one walk while striking out four in 5 2/3 innings.
