Top 10 moments from the Yankees' 2017 first-half

The Yankees and Cubs faced off on Sunday Night Baseball, as the Bombers were looking to sweep the Cubs. The Yankees seemed to have the game secured, until former Cub Aroldis Chapman blew a 4-1 Yankee lead to send the game to extra innings.
There would be no scoring until the EIGHTEENTH inning, as a bunt single by Aaron Hicks, error by the Cubs’ catcher, another bunt, and a fielder’s choice would manufacture the Yankees a fifth run. Jonathan Holder, Chasen Shreve, and Adam Warren combined to pitch eight scoreless innings for the Yankees.
Is there any debate on what the number one moment is? In one of the craziest wins in 2017 by any team, the Yankees trailed this game 5-0 and 9-1, before they came all the at back to win the game 14-11. I am not going to lie, when the Yankees trailed this game by eight runs, I turned the game off, went to the gym to play basketball, and came back to see a 9-9 game. Rather than explain to you every play that went into this epic victory, a clip of the whole rally is below for your pleasure.
