MIAMI (AP) — With seven weeks remaining in the season, the New York Yankees are running out of time.
Jake Burger’s game-ending single capped off a ninth-inning fifth-inning comeback against Clay Holmes and Tommy Kahnle, giving the Miami Marlins an 8-7 win on Sunday.
“The mountain gets bigger with every loss,” Holmes said. “We have to put together some wins. and continue to build momentum.”
Last-ranked New York (60-58) led 7-1 in the sixth inning behind ace Gerrit Cole, but dropped five games behind the AL’s final wild card position and is on track to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
The Yankees lose on a four-point lead in the ninth inning for the first time since July 11, 2021. New York is leading 3-8-1 in its last 12 series and has lost six straight rubber games from three of the series.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said, “Tough way to end the series. But we have to keep going. “We know we have to get the win and, as difficult as this game is, you have to move on from it.
Burger, who had three hits, reduced the deficit to 7-2 with Cole’s sixth-run RBI single. Wandy Peralta put Josh Bell in the lead for eighth and Bryan De La Cruz hit an RBI double from Kenyan Middleton.
Holmes (4-3), who has given up three runs in 35 games since May 6, doubled Yuli Gurreal’s lead from ninth place. middle at Anthony The rookie Volpe is unthinkable.
Jazz Chisholm, Jr. walks and Bell hits a jump barrel that bounces off Holmes’ gloves and goes to third base. The reliever wore ball gloves and quickly threw the ball past for error when Gurriel and Fortes scored.

“I’m dealing with the offensive up close,” Arraez said. “His pitch has moved but I’m always positive. I was looking for a contact and thank God he hung me with a sinker. And I can handle it.”
Kahnle relieved and followed de la Cruz, who took a step towards defensive apathy. With Oswaldo Cabrera part of a five-pitch, Burger singled to left for his seventh strike in the run. Hit 12 at-bats during the series.
“I just thought the bag of flies Something is up,” Berger said. “Luckily, I can pack up and be able to drive to the left.”
Burger and Bell were acquired by the trade deadline. As the Marlins find rest after their first season in a 162-game schedule since the 2003 World Series championship.
“The people in this clubhouse are great for us,” Berger said. “I spoke about it literally from the first minute. Step inside this clubhouse. I felt like I was part of the team. Talk about it emotionally because it’s hard to find a group of people like that.”
That, combined with Washington’s 8-7 victory over Oakland, trailed six times behind ninth place. It was the first day two comebacks from four or more deficits in the ninth or later innings since July 9, 2010.
Jorge López (6-2) threw a scoreless ninth to take the win before 35,043, the season’s highest at home for the Marlins.
