Yankees fans experienced a rollercoaster of emotions in wild win over Twins

One moment the Yankees were being wrecked by the Twins. The next, New York was pulling off their 16th comeback win. Fans went through it all.

The Yankees are the best team in baseball this season largely because of the exceptional performance of their pitching staff thus far.

So it came as a bit of a shock when the Minnesota Twins went back-to-back-to-back handing Jameson Taillon then Nestor Cortes then Gerrit Cole their worst outings of the season on consecutive days.

Despite that, New York came out of the series 2-1 thanks to a thrilling comeback from down 7-3 in the third inning.

Yankees fans went through highs and lows vs. Twins

When Gerrit Cole gave up five home runs in the first three innings, it looked like the Twins would run away with it. Instead, Joey Gallo, Aaron Hicks and Anthony Rizzo flipped the script and gave the Bronx plenty to celebrate.

After Minnesota took their 7-3 lead, the Yankees scored seven unanswered runs including home runs from Gallo, LeMahieu and Hicks.

As some of those fans tweeted, it was the kind of win and series that would make anyone believe the Yankees have something special going for them this season. They certainly have an impressive amount of resilience to lean on. No deficit is too large to be overcome it seems.

New York improved to 41-16 with a series against the Cubs on the horizon.

Minnesota dropped to 33-26 and will have to begin their series against the Rays wondering how they could have let the opportunity to humble the Yankees pass them by.
