The New York Yankees (43-35) rallied late for a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers (47-30) on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. 

With New York trailing 3-2 in the bottom of the eighth, Harrison Bader smoked a go-ahead two-run double and Giancarlo Stanton added an RBI single before Michael King nailed down the save. 

Gerrit Cole struggled and failed to complete five innings for the first time since June 9, 2022. The right-hander allowed three runs on nine hits over 4 2/3 innings. Despite all that, he recorded nine strikeouts.

The bullpen was lights out again as Jimmy Cordero, Nick Ramirez, Ron Marinaccio, and King combined for 4 1/3 scoreless frames.

DJ LeMahieu added a two-run double for New York, who finished the homestand with a 4-2 record.

The Yankees will head out west to begin a three-game series with the MLB-worst Oakland Athletics on Tuesday at 9:40 p.m.
