NEW YORK (AP) — Down five runs in the third inning with a rookie on the mound, the New York Yankees saw their season spiraling out of control.

Aaron Judge and Gary Sánchez revived them with the type of win they had not put together in more than a year.

Judge hit a tying three-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning and Sánchez singled in the 10th to drive in Gleyber Torres on the day the infielder lost the shortstop job, lifting the Yankees over the Minnesota Twins 6-5 Monday.

“It’s a roller coaster, but you got to enjoy the ride,” Judge said. “It’s not over yet.”

DJ LeMahieu began the comeback with a sacrifice fly in the sixth that Max Kepler caught with a leap against the right-field wall. Joey Gallo added his 33rd homer, his eighth with the Yankees, in the seventh off Tyler Duffey.

Wacha goes 6 effective innings, Rays beat Twins 5-3

  Wacha goes 6 effective innings, Rays beat Twins 5-3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Michael Wacha struck out seven over six innings, Kevin Kiermaier had an RBI triple during a three-run second and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Minnesota Twins 5-3 on Friday night. The AL East-leading Rays had lost two straight following a nine-game winning streak. Wacha (3-4) gave up two runs and three hits, including two homers. He was 0-2 with a 6.99 ERA in his previous eight starts. Andrew Kittredge, the third Tampa Bay reliever, worked the ninth to get his sixth save. Jorge Polanco and Ryan Jeffers homered for the Twins.

Duffey walked pinch-hitter Anthony Rizzo leading off the eighth and Brett Gardner with two outs. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli was ejected for taking issue with the calls of plate umpire Jeff Nelson, and Colomé relieved.

“It's frustrating when you go out and do your job and execute a pitch," Duffey said, “and the umpire just flat-out misses it. It seems to happen a lot in this stadium for some reason. I don't know if they're afraid to punch people out in Yankee Stadium.”

Judge, back in the lineup a day after leaving in the third inning against the Mets because of dizziness, sent a cutter to the opposite field in right for his 33rd homer. It was his 12th tying or go-ahead homer in the eighth or later since the start of 2017.

New York won for just the fourth time in 16 games following a 13-game winning streak and moved one percentage point ahead of Boston for the second AL wild-card berth, one game behind Toronto, with 18 games left. The Yankees had lost six straight home games for the first time in a decade.

Vogelbach's pinch-hit slam in 9th leads Brewers past Cards

  Vogelbach's pinch-hit slam in 9th leads Brewers past Cards MILWAUKEE (AP) — Daniel Vogelbach hit a pinch-hit grand slam off Alex Reyes to cap a five-run rally in the ninth inning that gave the Milwaukee Brewers a 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. Reyes (5-8) entered the game after the Brewers had loaded the bases off Giovanny Gallegos. Vogelbach hit a 1-0 pitch high above the outstretched arm of right fielder Dylan Carlson. The NL Central-leading Brewers trailed 5-1 before starting their comeback. Pablo Reyes hit his first homer of the season for Milwaukee, and Miguel Sanchez (2-0) pitched a scoreless ninth to earn the victory. Tyler O’Neill had three hits, including a home run, for the Cardinals.

Twice this season they had lost after leading by five runs, but they had not overcome a five-run deficit to win since Aug. 30 last year against the Mets. And they had been 0-35 when trailing by at least four runs, joining Miami and St. Louis as the only winless teams in that situation.

"It was really good to see the fight that we had today," Gallo said. “We could have easily let that game go.”

Jorge Polanco and Miguel Sanó hit two-run homers in the first, with Polanco reaching 30 for the first time. Byron Buxton homered for a 5-0 lead in the third off Luis Gil, who didn't allow another run through six innings.

Andrew Heaney, Albert Abreu, Aroldis Chapman and Clay Holmes (5-1) followed with two-hit, shutout relief. Chapman retired Polanco on a flyout in front of the center-field warning track to strand two runners in the ninth.

Manager Aaron Boone said before the game that Torres will spend the rest of the season at second. Torres was the automatic runner on second under pandemic rules when Sánchez singled sharply with one out in the 10th off Ralph Garza Jr. (1-3). Torres scored standing up as the Yankees streamed out of the dugout with their 10th walk-off win, their most since 2009.

The Twins (63-81) lost for the fourth time in five games and for the first time since 2018 will not have a winning record.
