Jose Trevino's walkoff lifts Yankees to 2-1 win in 13 innings over the Cubs

NEW YORK — The last time the Yankees needed a big walkoff hit at home, Jose Trevino was the hero. He did it on his late father’s birthday. On Friday, it was Trevino’s son’s birthday. An hour before his son’s fourth birthday was over, Trevino came to the plate again.

Trevino’s 13th inning single scored Joey Gallo, giving the Yankees a 2-1 win over the Cubs in the longest game played by the Yankees in more than three years. The last time the Yankees played this many innings in one game was a 14-inning marathon against the Angels in April 2019.

“It’s a collective unit, a collective group of guys just trying to do their jobs the best they can,” said Trevino. “They do nothing more than what they’re supposed to do. Every guy is handling it the way they’re supposed to and every guy is coming out ready to play.”

Trevino’s heroics gave the Yankees a victory and erased offensive woes throughout the game. The Yankees were 0-for-18 with a runner in scoring position entering Trevino’s at-bat, including leaving the bases loaded in the third inning and having the go-ahead run on second base with one out in the eighth.
