TORONTO (AP) -- After holding onto the AL East lead for more than 3½ months, the Yankees appeared set to fall out of first place on Sunday. Then they rallied from a four-run deficit and headed home still tied with Baltimore.
"Tonight was a season-defining game for us," New York's Nick Swisher said after a 9-6 win at the Toronto Blue Jays. "We could have gone down big like that and just packed it in, but that's not this team's M.O. That's not how we approach it."
