The Yankees’ season was already on life support on Monday, the Bombers having lost eight of nine.
They didn’t get a hit on Monday until Joey Gallo’s bunt single to lead off the fifth.
And then the Yankees finally came to life — thanks mostly to Aaron Judge, whose three-run homer tied it in the bottom of the eighth — and Gary Sanchez, who won it in the 10th.
With free runner Gleyber Torres at second base, Gio Urshela failed miserably in trying to bunt him over and whiffed for the first out before Sanchez ripped a game-winning single to left to score Torres.
It gave the Yankees a much-needed 6-5 win over the hapless Twins, as the Yankees stormed back from a 5-0 deficit and improved to 1-35 in games they trailed by more than four runs.
