New york – Travis d'Arnaud hit three home runs, including a startling three-run shot with two outs in the ninth inning off Aroldis Chapman, and the Tampa Bay Rays overcame their Yankee Stadium woes to win 5-4 on Monday night.
D'Arnaud went the other way on a full-count breaking ball, lofting a go-ahead drive that sailed over the leap of Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge while a crowd of 43,173 fell silent.
The catcher tied a Tampa Ray record for homers in a game. "Coolest night ever," d'Arnaud said.
The Yankees had been 49-0 this season when leading after eight innings.
Andrew Kittredge got the win despite allowing Edwin Encarnacion's second homer of the game, a two-run shot in the eighth that put the Yankees up 4-2.
D'Arnaud led off the game with a homer to right field. In the third, he connected again.
