NEW YORK — Rookie Miguel Andujar flared an RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning and the New York Yankees, after blowing two late leads, beat the Cleveland Indians 7-6 Friday night for their 13th win in 14 games.

Gleyber Torres, at 21, became the youngest Yankees player to hit a home run since 1969. He connected in the first matchup between these teams since New York won the decisive Game 5 of the AL Division Series in Cleveland last October.

Aaron Judge homered, doubled and drew a bases-loaded walk in the eighth that put the Yankees ahead 6-5. Cleveland tied it in the ninth, scoring on the second wild pitch of the inning by Aroldis Chapman (1-0), who showed frustration after the ball got by catcher Gary Sanchez.

Sanchez has allowed 20 wild pitches this season to go along with five passed balls.

Giancarlo Stanton doubled off Alexi Ogando (0-1) to begin the Yankees ninth, and closer Cody Allen relieved. With two outs and runners on second and third, Andujar looped a single to shallow right-center field.

Down 5-0 in the eighth, the Indians suddenly pulled even. Bradley Zimmer hit a three-run shot off Chasen Shreve, and Jose Ramirez launched a two-run drive off David Robertson.

RAYS 6, BLUE JAYS 2: Relief pitcher Ryan Yarbrough made his case for a spot in an injury-depleted rotation by throwing five scoreless innings for Tampa Bay at St. Petersburg, Florida.

Johnny Field homered off J.A. Happ (4-2) and Brad Miller added a two-run shot to put it out of reach in the eighth. Wilson Ramos, Denard Span and Adeiny Hechavarria also drove in runs for the Rays, who have won 10 of 13 after a slow start.

Yarbrough (2-1) is a 26-year-old rookie who may wind up in the rotation after allowing a single to the first batter he faced, Dalton Pompey in the third, then retiring 15 straight.
