Huge win. Pretty much ices the division crown. Frankie Cervelli, though, was lucky – only having one out registered when he got the walk-off hit in the 9th…when he ran towards right field, after rounding first, running away from his teammates. Why?
Can’t say enough about Matsui’s homerun to tie this one in the eighth inning.
So, how many games will the Yankees now win this season, overall? 102? It should be more. Is 104 too many?
Know how many times the Yankees have won 104+ games in a season? The answer is: Six. (1998, 1963, 1961, 1939, 1932, and 1927.) And, that’s not a lot. I hope they make it seven this year.
