The Yankees walked off for the second time this season today.
Jorge Posada lined a game-winning 2 run single to left-center in the bottom of the 9th, and the Yankees came back from down 9-4 to win the game.
The Yanks put up a 4 spot in the first, the big blow a Posada 2-run homer. The Angels scored 6 in the 6th, and took a 6-4 lead. Gary Matthews, Jr. had a 3 run triple in the frame. The Angels tacked on 3 more in the 7th to make it 9-4. The Yanks plated 4 in the 8th. Ramiro Pena had a big 2-run single, and the Yanks trailed by a run, 9-8. Brian Fuented tried to close it out for LAA. Big Tex led off with a walk. Matsui lined a single to left. Cano lined a single to center. Bases loaded, no outs. On a 3-2 pitch, Posada lined one into the left-center field gap, scoring Teixeira and Angel Berroa, who pinch ran for Matsui. Jonathan Alabedejo got the win for New York. Coupled with our 7-4 win last night, we have taken the first two of this 4 game series, and have won 4 in a row overall.
Notes: The Yankees improved to 13-10 with the win, the Angels dropped to 9-13… Tomorrows starters are CC Sabathia (1-0) vs. Mike Palmer (1-0)…
