Any way to change the distance between the numbers and the actual plot?

This answer on StackOverflow worked for me: https://stackoverflow.com/a/45103006. S2 value depends on your figure size and does not scale like the regular tick values. If you change the last line of code to be
ax.XTickLabel = [' ']; %instead of: ax.XTickLabel = [];
you prevent the XLabel from overlapping the XTickLabel. Maybe someone could modify that code to shift YTickLabel as well. I tried without success.

% Distance between x-axis is 1 units
x=0:1:50;
y=sin(x);
subplot(2,1,1), plot(x,y)
% Reducing distance between x-axis to 0.5 units
x=0:0.5:50;
y=sin(x);
subplot(2,1,2), plot(x,y)
Generally, this is how we reduce spacing size of x-axis. To know specifically, you have to show us the case in which you want reduction.

Yes Amos you are right.
The distance between the numbers displayed below the plot and the box limit (bottom plot limit or the x-axis line)
I have several subplots and I need to put the numbers very close to the X-axis line to save space.
Explorer I dont want the horizontal distance between numbers I want the vertical distance between the X-axis line and the numbers. In other words I want to put the numbers just below the X-axis line.

________________ Axis
0 1 2
________________ Axis (I want this without space between line and numbers)
0 1 2

I would also like an answer to this question.
I've tried making the tick label interpreter latex and then adding \vspace{-1mm} calls but all whitespace commands seem to be ignored.
