Recap


Yankees 4, Diamondbacks 3:
Travis Hafner hit a pinch-hit go-ahead home run in the eighth inning as host New York erased a deficit and downed Arizona for the second consecutive night.

Hafner came on with the bases empty and two outs and lined a first-pitch fastball from David Hernandez (0-1) into the lower level in right-center after the Yankees had stormed back to tie it with three runs in the seventh. CC Sabathia (3-1) allowed three runs and six hits in eight innings and Mariano Rivera took care of the ninth for his fourth save.

Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer and A.J. Pollock added an RBI for the Diamondbacks, who squandered a two-run lead in the series opener Tuesday.

Wade Miley started for Arizona and cruised through the first six innings, allowing two hits and one walk without a run. Things turned in the seventh, when Brennan Boesch doubled with two outs and a runner on first and Miley walked two straight to force in a run.

Tony Sipp entered in relief and Brett Gardner sent a single into left to knot it at 3-3. The Diamondbacks had taken the lead on Goldschmidt’s blast in the first and Pollock’s sacrifice fly in the fifth.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Yankees OF Ben Francisco singled in the seventh for his first hit since joining the team during spring training. … Goldschmidt has reached base in all 14 games this season. … Arizona will try to avoid its first series sweep of the season Thursday behind LHP Patrick Corbin, who grew up in New York.
