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!
