Aaron Judge and Miguel Andujar each hit two-run homers off James Paxton in the first inning as the New York Yankees beat the visiting Seattle Mariners 4-3 Thursday for a three-game sweep.

Luis Severino and the Yankees boosted the best record in the majors to 50-22. They've won four in a row and 17 of 21. Seattle has lost a season-high four consecutive.

New York launched eight homers in the sweep and tops baseball with 122 long balls. Giancarlo Stanton homered in the first two games of the series and almost added another, but center fielder Mitch Haniger jumped to reach above the wall to rob him in the opening inning.

"We've obviously played well, racked up a lot of wins," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "We've played well against some of the elite teams."

Severino gave up Kyle Seager's two-run homer in the second and permitted eight hits, matching a season most. He was pulled with two outs in the sixth after Ben Gamel's RBI single cut Seattle's deficit to one run. But he got the win, improving to 7-0 at home this season.

Los Angeles 8, Toronto 5: Luis Valbuena hit two homers and had three RBI to lead the host Angeles over the Blue Jays. Cole Calhoun also had a homer for Los Angeles.
