Suddenly the world isn’t coming to a rapid and depressing close thanks to Miguel Andujar.

Miggy slapped a breaking ball into left field in the top of the 13th inning on the south side of Chicago on Tuesday night, providing the New York Yankees with their second-straight victory over losing five consecutive ballgames (three in Boston and two against the Orioles).

Andujar finished the star at the plate hitting out of the six-hole. Finishing 3-for-5 with a run and two runs knocked in, Miggy’s currently hitting .292 during this stellar rookie season. His other hit was a clutch seventh-inning solo shot that provided the Yanks life after being shutout up until that point. His dinger turned a 1-0 game into a 1-1 extra-inning affair.

The Yanks didn’t muster their first hit until Aaron Hicks broke through with a single in the sixth.

After scoring two runs in the top of the 10th, newcomer Zach Britton gave it right back, blowing his second save of the season in surrendering two runs. It was a Jose Abreu two-out clutch two-run home run that almost did the Yankees in while allowing the game to march on into the south side night.

After Miggy’s go-ahead ribbie, it was the newest bullpen arm, Sonny Gray, who nailed it down. In fact, he picked up his ninth win of the season after coming in for the bottom of the 11th inning after Britton relented the lead.

Gray finished the night as one of the heroes, giving up no runs on just one hit and one walk while striking out four in three innings or work.

Starting the game was CC Sabathia who struck out 12 batters in just 5.2 innings of work. His only blemish came in the bottom of the fourth when Abreu knocked in a run.

Now riding a two-game winning streak, the New York Yankees will look to sweep the lowly Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night. First pitch comes your way at 8:10 p.m. ET.
