NEW YORK (AP) — No. 9 hitter Tyrone Taylor filled in for Christian Yelich and hit a go-ahead homer to start a three-run eighth inning that sparked the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-2 victory after the New York Yankees celebrated the 25th anniversary of their 1998 championship team. With the score 2-2, Taylor hit a 1-0 sinker off Jonathan Loáisiga down the left field line for his sixth homer. Taylor was inserted into Milwaukee's lineup when Yelich was scratched due to lower back soreness. Milwaukee opened a four-game NL Central lead over the second-place Chicago Cubs.
