The Yankees won again coming from behind, today against Oakland – AGP Deportes

NEW YORK, New York — Josh Donaldson hit a go-ahead two-run double for the Yankees, taking advantage of an unlikely rally built behind two catcher’s interference errors, a walk and a pitch hit, to drive in a 9-5 victory over the A’s on Monday night at Yankee Stadium.

New York earned its major league-leading 23rd come-from-behind victory after hitting a six-run seventh inning, sparked when Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton reached base after swings hit catcher Sean Murphy’s glove. Donaldson had the decisive hit, then José Treviño and Marwin González added infield hits that scored runs.

The Yankees were down, 5-1, after three innings, with Oakland batting in a five-run third off Jordan Montgomery, the big hit delivered by Elvis Andrus, who cleared the bases with a three-run double.

Anthony Rizzo opened the scoring with his 20th homer in the first inning and Stanton cut the deficit with his 18th homer in the fourth inning, both solo homers. Judge had a run-scoring single in the fifth, as Oakland starter Paul Blackburn sailed through five three-run innings.

New York sent 10 men to the plate in the seventh. DJ LeMahieu walked with one out and Judge cut Murphy’s glove on what initially appeared to be a double-play groundout to third base. Rizzo was then hit by a pitch and Stanton also hit Murphy’s glove to set up Donaldson, who restored the Yankees’ lead.
