Yankees rally in ninth to avoid sweep in Toronto

The New York Yankees snapped a three-game skid on Wednesday afternoon in Toronto with a 6-4 come-from-behind victory over the Blue Jays.

New York (13-6) fell behind early and trailed 4-2 going into the ninth inning but fought back, scoring four runs to grab the lead before Clay Holmes closed it out with his seventh save of the season. 

Giancarlo Stanton started the rally with a long solo home run into the left-field seats. Jose Trevino came off the bench and delivered a game-tying RBI single. Then, Aaron Judge, who has really struggled to start the season, smoked a go-ahead, two-out, two-run single. 

Juan Soto went deep earlier in the game and had a two-run double as part of a three-hit day. He also walked twice, the second of which set up Judge in the ninth for the go-ahead hit. 

Marcus Stroman surrendered two runs in 5.1 innings against his former team. Caleb Ferguson struggled for a second straight outing, allowing two runs. 

Box Score 

The Yankees will get the day off before they begin a seven-game homestand on Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
