Cody is clutch for Snakes

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Cody Ross hit a go-ahead single in the 12th inning, Eric Chavez followed with a three-run double against his former team and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the New York Yankees 6-2 Thursday night after one fan came up with two home run balls, including Francesco Cervelli's tying drive in the ninth.

The Yankees failed to complete a three-game sweep after learning captain Derek Jeter again fractured his left ankle and will be sidelined until after the All-Star break.

On a strange night that included a pair of catcher's interference calls against Cervelli, Robinson Cano started New York's comeback from a 2-0 deficit with a sixth-inning homer off Patrick Corbin.

Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius, playing in his first game in an Arizona uniform, homered on the first pitch he saw from Yankees starter Phil Hughes. It was Gregorius first big league home run.
