MIAMI — Newly acquired Anthony Rizzo homered, singled and walked for the New York Yankees in a 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins.

His solo homer in the sixth ended a 14-inning scoreless string for the Yankees. It came off Marlins starter Zach Thompson.

It was the 15th homer of the season for Rizzo.

All-Star outfielder Joey Gallo, another lefty slugger who joined New York in trade from Texas, went 0-for-4 with a walk.

Rougned Odor had two RBI for the Yankees.

Jameson Tailon won his sixth straight decision with 5 2/3 innings of scoreless ball.
