Yanks walkoff with another win
The New York Yankees defeated the Kansas City Royals tonight by the score of 4-3. They continued their magical season with their 15th walkoff win and 50th come from behind victory of the year. A.J. Burnett got the start and looked great pitching 6 1/3 innings allowing 2 runs, 1 earned on 3 hits with 3 walks and 8 strikeouts. Phil Coke came in to pitch and pitched a inning and 2/3 he gave up a couple of runs but basically because of his fielding as he took his time on a bunt and let Gordon beat it out then threw a ball hit back to him into center field and then on another comebacker to him didn't throw home when the runner was clearly dead in the water. Dave Robertson pitched 2/3 of an inning not allowing a hit or run. Brian Bruney finished it off with 1 1/3 scoreless innings as he trys to work himself onto the postseason roster. Juan Miranda had the walkoff hit which is great to see out of another young guy. Francisco Cervelli had a hit, A-rod had a hit and a walk. Derek Jeter had a hit and a walk, Mark Teixeira had a solo homerun giving him 39 homeruns and 121 rbi's. Nick Swisher had a solo homerun and Jose Molina had a hit. The ninth inning started with a single by Francisco Cervelli, Eric Hinske had a pinch hit single putting Cervelli on third. Robinson Cano got ahead 3-0 and got the green light and promptly crushed a ball to deep center, it was caught but was a sac fly. Eric Hinske then stole second and went to third when the ball was thrown into center. Johnny Damon was walked intentionally and Juan Miranda hit a single off of Kyle Farnsworths leg. The Yankees will go for the sweep in the final regular season home game of the year. Joba Chamberlain will try and end his season on a good note and continue the success he had from his last start against Boston.
