The New York Yankees scored two runs in the ninth inning to tie the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, then two more in the 13th to win the finale of a two-game series, 4-2.

Only one run came home on a hit.

The Yankees, stymied by Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija for seven innings, scored two on a botched double play in the ninth and got the go-ahead tally on a Jose Veras wild pitch in the 13th.

The Yankees, who will remain in Chicago to play the White Sox, had 13 hits in the game -- all singles -- and snapped a two-game slide.

The Cubs had a three-game winning streak snapped, which included a 6-1 win in the series opener on Tuesday when they became the first major league team to beat Yankees rookie Masahiro Tanaka.

They continued to let down Samardzija, who has now gone 16 starts without a win, including 10 outings this season, despite leading the majors with a 1.46 ERA.
