June’s Best Moment: Didi Caps Off Epic Come-From-Behind Win

Staring right into their fourth straight loss and what would have been a ten-game fallback in the American League East race, the Yanks pulled a win out of nowhere that could ultimately provide a spark to a sad 2016.

Down 7-4 and facing Texas Rangers’ closer Sam Dyson, catcher Brian McCann pounded a tremendous three-run homer into the seats in right to knot the game up at seven after it was foreseen that New York would go down without a fight.

After a Starlin Castro walk, Yankees’ shortstop Didi Gregorius slapped a fastball just over the wall in right to cap off their first win when trailing by five or more runs in the eighth inning or later since May 1, 2009.
