Back to the New York Yankees Newsfeed Taillon Stinks, But the Yankees Still Somehow Pull Off 12th Straight Victory

Three early home runs suggested that the Yankees might finally enjoy a laugher in extending their winning streak to 12 games, their longest since Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris comprised the heart of the batting order. Instead, they scraped for their new trademark: another hard-fought close win.

After seeing their six-run lead evaporate, Aaron Judge delivered a tiebreaking bloop single to chase home Tyler Wade in the ninth inning and Aroldis Chapman closed out his 300th career save as the Yankees celebrated a 7-6 victory over the Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum.
