The New York Yankees came from behind on Wednesday and now seek a series split in Thursday’s matinee.

Another game down, another game in which the New York Yankees came from behind to win. This time, Gary Sanchez’s game-tying home run in the ninth was followed by a Luke Voit walk-off single. Now, the Yankees will go for the series split with the Kansas City Royals in a Thursday matinee.

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.
