Once, Twice, Three Times a Walk-Off…

Holy Cow!  Not one, not two, but three walk-off wins in a row! 

Johnny Damon’s 10th inning shot to the right field stands gave the Yankees a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins.  The home run was hit on a 95 MPH fastball, with a full count.  These games are fun, but man, nothing like that to get your blood pressure up…

 

The Yanks missed an opportunity to win it in the bottom of the 9th when Brett Gardner tried to score from second on an infield hit by Francisco Cervelli and was thrown out at the plate.

It was a great pitching performance by A.J. Burnett, who did not give up any runs until the 7th inning.

Alfredo Aceves, 2-0, was the winner for the second consecutive day.  He’s liking these walk-off wins too! 

The Yankees conclude their four game series with the Twins on Monday.  Surely, the walk-off win streak cannot continue.  I’d settle for one of those 10 run innings early to put the game out of reach.  I don’t want much!

Scott- Walk off wins are the best… I mean, when your team hits them, if the other team hits them then they suck. Your Yankees keep putting up a fight, you might give Julia a run for her money.

Three in a row is pretty impressive; congrats. And the Celtics are gone – I know you were rooting for them; thanks. Sadly, even the local media did not have them going far this post season. The Lakers do have a tough series against the Nuggets; and then the Cavs? I don’t know if anyone will beat them. Oh – and thanks for reminding me that the Yankees are only 1 1/2 games behind the Sox now; that so helped my morning. ;-) Oh – Emily – you’re wrong; Scott will still be joining me in wearing a Pink Red Sox hat after the next Red Sox-Yankees series.

Why yes, Scott. As shocking as it might be – on “rare” occasion I have been know to “rant”. I know, I know, I hide it so well. ;-)

I loe the walk offs. But three is a little much for me. I’d like exactly what you said. A ten run inning putting the game out of reach. This winning streak is great and the Red Sox have been losing which helps us a lot in the AL East standings.
