The New York Yankees came back to win Saturday and now seek a Father’s Day victory over the Oakland A’s.

The New York Yankees used some late-inning heroics to defeat the Oakland A’s 7-5 on Saturday. Gio Urshela’s solo home run in the eighth gave New York the lead for good, and Aroldis Chapman capped it by striking out Matt Chapman on a 103.4 mph fastball.

New York is still in third place in the AL East but following a Boston Red Sox win and Tampa Bay Rays loss, they only trail the top spot by 5.5 games.
