It looked as if the New York Yankees (60-58) were going to take two of three from the Miami Marlins (61-57) as they led by four going into the ninth inning, but that was not the case as they fell 8-7 after giving up five consecutive runs in what was a total collapse.
Clay Holmes had trouble putting batters away, and a costly throwing error helped Miami tie the game before Tommy Kahnle entered and gave up a walk-off single to Jake Burger, who hurt New York all series.
Before the collapse, Gerrit Cole tossed six innings of two-run ball. Anthony Volpe crushed his 16th home run of the season, while Ben Rortvedt smacked his first as a Yankee. Isiah Kiner-Falefa plated a run with a single, and Giancarlo Stanton added an RBI double.
The Yankees, who are 1-8-3 in their last 12 series, will open a three-game set with the Major League-leading Atlanta Braves Monday night at Truist Park. The first pitch is slated for 7:20 p.m.
