WASHINGTON — The Yankees did not let the Washington Nationals toot their own horn and beat the reigning World Series champions 3-2.

New York's Gleyber Torres orchestrated a comeback for New York, hitting a homer in the seventh inning and a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth. The Yankees trailed 2-0 entering the seventh before the Nationals’ bullpen blew the lead.

Washingon lefty Patrick Corbin retired New York’s first 11 batters and 18 of the first 19. But with one out in the seventh, Torres took Corbin deep on a first-pitch fastball to make it 2-1.

Will Harris then surrendered a tying homer to Luke Voit. Torres added an RBI single in the eighth.
