Josh Donaldson’s grand slam in 10th leads Yankees to comeback win

The way the Yankees have been hitting lately, their games have largely lacked drama because their lineup has not posed much threat of a comeback.

They made up for it in emphatic fashion Wednesday night.

After wiping out a four-run deficit to force extra innings and then falling behind by three runs in the top of the 10th, Josh Donaldson pulled the Yankees from the depths of despair with a walk-off grand slam for an 8-7 win in The Bronx.

With Aaron Judge the automatic runner on second base, a Gleyber Torres single and an Anthony Rizzo walk against Rays reliever Jalen Beeks loaded the bases for Donaldson, who had been stuck in a 3-for-28 slump. He shot an 0-1 pitch to the opposite field and it landed in the short porch to set off a wild celebration.
