    The Yankees have played in the post-season a lot of years. Yeah, I know…Duh!

    But, did you know that, in all those post-season series that the Yankees have played, only twice has the series ended with a Yankees batter striking out? Yup. ‘Tis true – here’s the list:

    Date Series Gm# Batter Opp Pitcher Score Inn RoB Out Pit(cnt)
    1980-10-10 ALCS 3 Willie Randolph KCR Dan Quisenberry down 2-4 b 9 2 6 (3-2)
    2007-10-08 ALDS 4 Jorge Posada CLE Joe Borowski down 4-6 b 9 2 3 (0-2)

    Pretty good Yankees-trivia nugget here…

    Go ahead and try it on your friends. If they get it right without looking it up, they deserve a prize.

      I remember Willie’s K to end the ’80 ALCS, but I honestly forgot about Jorge in 2007 – maybe just as well.

      Strangely enough, we’ve lost the same number of World Series in Game 7 bottom of the 9th as we’ve had postseason series end in a K.
