NEW YORK (AP) — Vernon Wells broke out of a big slump with a pinch-hit, three-run double, and the New York Yankees rallied to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-5 on Saturday.

Wells was in a 9-for-87 slide that landed him on the bench the past two days, with rookie outfielder Zoilo Almonte starting in his place. But with the Yankees trailing 5-4 in the seventh inning, Wells batted for No. 9 hitter Chris Stewart with the bases loaded and two outs. His drive to right-center bounced above the top of the wall, where it hit a fan’s glove and was ruled fan interference.

The Rays led 5-3 after top prospect Wil Myers hit a grand slam for his first career home run in the sixth.
