Jacoby Ellsbury hit a tiebreaking, two-run single in the ninth inning and the New York Yankees, boosted by Alex Rodriguez's 695th career homer, rallied past the Minnesota Twins 7-6 Saturday.

The Yankees scored three times in the ninth for a 7-4 lead. Closer Aroldis Chapman gave up back-to-back homers to Eduardo Escobar and Kurt Suzuki with two outs in the bottom half before holding on for his 13th save in 14 chances.

Minnesota led 4-0 after six innings. Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran each hit two-run homers to tie it.

Andrew Miller (4-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win.

With the score tied at 4, Fernando Abad (1-1) walked Chase Headley to lead off the ninth. Didi Gregorius then slipped a bunt past Abad and beat second baseman Brian Dozier's throw to put two runners on with nobody out. A passed ball prompted an intentional walk to Rob Refsnyder to load the bases.

Reliever Ryan Pressly struck out pinch-hitter Starlin Castro, but Ellsbury singled.
