Through the middle innings Thursday night, the Yankees were in danger of being no-hit for the second time this season
this time by an All-Star right-hander who is on their radar for a summer trade.
Cincinnati Reds right-hander Luis Castillo held the Yankees hitless
before Anthony Rizzo doubled with one out in the sixth inning of an interleague series finale at Yankee Stadium.
No Yankees hitter came close to a hit through five innings facing the 29-year-old righty
who could be moved before the Aug. 2 trade deadline by the rebuilding Reds.
The Reds took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Drury
then the Yankees tied the game in the sixth when Aaron Judge worked a one-out walk
Rizzo doubled to right for the first hit and Giancarlo Stanton hit an RBI-groundout to second base.
