The Yankees made a comeback ala 2001 at the Stadium tonight coming back from a 3-0 deficit.
Travis Hafner had a pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning to make a winner of CC Sabathia, who settled down after a shaky start and helped the New York Yankees beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 Wednesday night.
Brett Gardner had a tying, two-run single in the seventh for New York. Stymied by Wade Miley for six innings, the Yankees broke through and won for the seventh time in eight games.
Sabathia (3-1) gave up an opposite-field, two-run homer to Paul Goldschmidt in the first – one of three hits in the opening inning – then only three more hits and a sacrifice fly to A.J. Pollock through the eighth.
