The Yankees are out of the playoffs, looking to the future, and rookie catcher Austin Wells makes for a bright one.
Wells launched a game-tying two-run blast off of Arizona’s Merrill Kelly in the fourth inning. Statcast measured his home run at 420 feet.

It was Wells’ second home run of the year. He hit his first, a garbage time solo shot, against the Blue Jays last Wednesday.
The Yankees and Diamondbacks remain tied 2-2 in the fourth inning.
