Neil Walker hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to cap off the Yankees' 5-4 come-from-behind victory over the White Sox on Tuesday night. >> Box score
1) The Yankees were trailing by four runs in the sixth inning when Miguel Andujar hit a two-run homer to put New York on the board and cut Chicago's lead in half. Aaron Hicks added a two-run homer in the eighth and Walker went deep in the bottom of the ninth to seal the win.
2) Lance Lynn turned in a quality start as he allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings of work. Jonathan Holder allowed a run in 2 1/3 innings and Dellin Betances earned the victory with his scoreless ninth inning.
3) The top six hitters in the Yankees' lineup had one hit and Brett Gardner hit his fifth triple of the season. Gardner's triple marked the Yankees' only extra-base hit of the game outside of the three home runs.

The Yankees looked stuck in gear through the first five innings, but three home runs had New York walking off (literally) as the victors.
Not surprisingly, the Yankees' offense was sparked by Andujar, by far the team's hottest hitter. After Andujar's two-run homer, the energy that seemed lost Monday and through the first half of this game returned. Hicks, the most underrated player on this squad, and maybe among the more underrated in the game, turned the game completely around with his game-tying homer.
But, the big blow came from Walker, whose time with the club was once hanging by a thread. Over the last several weeks, Walker has been in the middle of many of the Yankees recent wins and he's been among the players to step up while the stars of the club have been shelved with injuries.
The Yankees and White Sox will conclude their series on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.
