Yanks Sweep Texas, Pass Blue Jays, Roll into Fenway Showdown
NEW YORK (AP) — Gleyber Torres doubled home Joey Gallo for the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning, Gary Sánchez followed with a two-run homer and the New York Yankees rallied past the Texas Rangers 7-3 to cap a three-game sweep before beginning a season-ending divisional gauntlet that will decide their postseason fate. The Yankees’ wild-card chase takes them to Fenway Park for three games starting Friday night. That’s followed with three games at Toronto and a season-ending, three-game homestand against Tampa Bay. New York is half a game ahead of Toronto for the second and final AL wild card.
