Jose Trevino hits walk-off single as Yanks beat Cubs in 13

Joey Gallo scored as Trevino came through with the winning hit off Alec Mills, lifting the Yanks to their Major League-best 42nd victory and their ninth win in the last 10 games. Ron Marinaccio, who tossed a scoreless top of the 13th, was credited with the victory.

The 13-inning contest tied for the longest played in the Majors so far this season, equaling a 13-inning tilt between the Orioles and Rays on May 20 — an 8-6 Baltimore victory.

Luis Severino started for New York and struck out 10 over six innings of one-run ball, limiting Chicago to Jason Heyward’s fifth-inning home run. Severino scattered seven hits and permitted one walk as the Yankees improved to 9-2 in his 11 starts this year.

Gleyber Torres comprehended the Yanks’ offense until the final inning. Torres launched his 11th home run on the first pitch he saw in the fourth inning from Daniel Norris, who relieved Wade Miley after the left-hander exited with left shoulder soreness.

The Yankees lead the Majors with 88 home runs. They improved to 4-1 in extra-inning games this season.
