What a finish! The Yankees snuck past the A’s this afternoon at Yankee Stadium, 2-1. It took some clutch hitting from Gary Sánchez (who else?) and an incredible triple play to bail out a shaky Aroldis Chapman in the ninth to win this one. That’s right, the Yankees turned a game-ending triple play, as you can see in the video above, to win this one.
Make it back-to-back comeback victories against a division rival. The Yankees topped the Blue Jays tonight, 3-2. Gerrit Cole was terrific in spite of no longer using whatever concoction he previously used on the baseball, which was great to see. He even touched 102 MPH on the radar gun in his final inning of work. Also fun: Gary Sánchez’s pinch-hit, two-run homer in the seventh that put the Yankees ahead for good. To the takeaways:

The Yankees’ four-game losing streak is over. New York beat the Twins 8-4 in the first of three at Minnesota. It’s really too bad that the Twins aren’t in the AL East. The Yankees would never lose the division. Anyway, let’s get to tonight’s takeaways.
