The New York Yankees rallied to beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-5, on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees trailed 5-3 going into the bottom of the ninth, but Jose Trevino and DJ LeMahieu worked back-to-back one-out walks to bring Aaron Judge to the plate as the winning run. After falling behind in the count and fouling a few pitches off, Judge crushed a walk-off three-run homer to left. That was his first career walk-off home run and 10th of the season.

Giancarlo Stanton provided the rest of the offense as he launched a game-tying three-run home run just over the right-field wall in the sixth.

New York had just five total hits, but two really big swings propelled them to victory.
Luis Severino got the start for the Yankees and struggled through the first couple of innings, but then settled in and was able to pitch into the fifth. He surrendered three runs on five hits over 4.2 innings while walking two and striking out eight.
Jonathan Loasiga and Chad Green each allowed a run in relief.
The Yankees will go for the two-game sweep on Wednesday afternoon. Jameson Taillon will get the start. The first pitch is slated for 12:35 PM ET.
