SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- DJ LeMahieu and Gio Urshela became the latest Yankees to get hurt as New York completed a three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants with an 11-5 win Sunday that included another long home run by Gary Sanchez.

LeMahieu was removed in the bottom of the third because of right knee inflammation. LeMahieu fouled a pitch off the knee on Friday night and had the knee wrapped with ice after Friday's and Saturday's games. In his first season with the Yankees, LaMahieu is hitting .310 with 15 RBIs.

Urshela left after he was hit on his left hand by an 88.5 mph cutter from Nick Vincent in the fifth. Urshela had two hits Sunday and is batting .351 with six RBIs in 57 at-bats.

The Yankees said X-rays on both players were negative.

New York has had 15 players on the injured list this year and just two have come back: Sanchez and pitcher CC Sabathia. Still, the Yankees are 6-1 on a western trip after outscoring the Giants 21-12, and New York improved to a season-best six games over .500 at 17-11 by winning for the 11th time in 13 games.

With a depleted bench, the Yankees used pitcher J.A. Happ as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning, and he grounded out.

Sanchez and Gleyber Torres hit two-run homers as the Yankees built an 8-0 lead by the sixth inning, and Luke Voit added three hits and a walk to extend his on-base streak to 39 games

Domingo German (5-1) took a shutout into the sixth before tiring and tied for the major league lead in wins. He allowed four runs and five hits in six innings.

New York took a 2-0 lead in the first, Voit doubled the lead with a two-run single in the second and Torres homered in the third. Sanchez's sixth-inning drive left the bat at 111.8 mph and traveled 430 feet, landing near the top of the left-field stands. That nearly matched Sanchez's first career grand slam Saturday that traveled 467 feet.

Kevin Pillar homered and had three RBIs for the Giants, last in the NL West at 11-17.

TRAINERS ROOM

Yankees: OF Clint Frazier (left ankle sprain) did some light hitting and ran on a treadmill. Frazier is expected to do more intense running when the team plays in Arizona.

Giants: OF Steven Duggar is day to day with a wrist injury he sustained stumbling over the bullpen mound near right field on Friday. Duggar had X-rays on Saturday, which were negative.

UP NEXT

Yankees: Sabathia (1-0, 2.40 ERA) pitches against the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Tuesday. The big lefty needs three strikeouts to reach 3,000.

Giants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (2-1, 3.00) makes his first start against the Dodgers since 2017 at Oracle Park on Monday. Samardzija has lost four of five decisions in eight appearances against Los Angeles.
