Walking off in style

ajpie.jpgThe Yankees recorded their 15th walk-off win of the season, marking their most such wins since a franchise-record 17 “walk-off” victories in 1943. The Yankees picked up their ninth win of the season when trailing at the end of the seventh inning and fifth when trailing after eight innings.

Juan Miranda recorded his first career walk-off hit, becoming  the ninth different Yankee to collect a “walk-off” hit in 2009 and the second rookie to do so (also Francisco Cervelli on Sept. 16 vs. Toronto). This was also the Yankees’ Major League-leading 50th comeback win of the season, surpassing their total from 2008 (49).

Farnsworthless is a prime example of anyone that can throw the ball at 100 mph makes a ML team these days. This guy has always had a rocket arm and a popgun mind. Glad he is in KC.
