Comeback Kids

Today, the Yankees had their 20th come-from-behind win.

Now, given that some of these wins probably include some where the Yanks came from behind in the 1st or the 2nd, here's a more telling stat:

The Yanks this year have five wins when trailing going into the 8th inning. They had four all of last year.

In the month of May, the Yankees had five walk off wins. In the month of June thus far, the Yankees have already had two games where they took the lead in the bottom of the 8th after tying the game late.

You think, maybe, this team should just skip the first six innings?
