NEW YORK — Giancarlo Stanton hit a game-ending single off Brad Hand in the ninth inning, and the New York Yankees beat Washington 3-2 for their second straight walk-off win over the Nationals.

Hand walked Tyler Wade and pinch-hitter Aaron Judge starting the ninth, a day after walking his first batter and blowing ninth- and 10th-inning leads in a game New York won 4-3 in 11 innings.

DJ LeMahieu hit into a forceout that left runners at the corners, and Stanton lined a slider for his 24th RBI.

New York went 7-2 on its longest homestand of the season, improving to 18-16
