Recapping The Walk Offs

After the Yankees’ 11th walk off win of the season, Steve listed the walk offs and linked to the relevant boxscores. With one home game remaining and the Yankees walk-off total up to 15, I thought it would be fun to run through them all, with the links pointing towards replays of each exciting walk off hit.

4/22– Yankees beat A’s 9-7 on two run homer by Melky Cabrera in the 14th. It was Melky’s second home run of the day.

5/1– The Yankees score 6 runs in the last two innings to turn a 9-4 deficit into a 10-9 win over the Angels. Jorge Posada delivered the game winning two run single.

5/15– The Yankees began Walk off Weekend with a 5-4 victory over the Twins. Brett Gardner had an inside the park home run, and Melky Cabrera notched a two run single off Joe Nathan to win it.

5/16– Walk off weekend continues as A-Rod hits a two run homer in the 11th to win it.

5/17– Walk off Weekend concludes with another extra inning victory over the Twins, as Johnny Damon’s solo shot in the 10th provides the drama.

5/23– The Yankees come back against Brad Lidge and the Phils to win 5-4. A-Rod hit a two run homer to tie, and Melky’s RBI single won it.

6/12– A-Rod pops up to Luis Castillo. You know the rest.

7/4– Roy Halladay serves up 3 homers and allows 5 runs, but the game goes to extras. Posada’s RBI single wins it.

7/20– Matsui walks-off with a home run against the Orioles, after the Yankees make two plays at the plate to keep the O’s at 1 run.

8/7– Game of the year, as the Yankees and Red Sox remain scoreless into the 15th. Once there, A-Rod launches a 2 run homer off Tazawa, and the division race was effectively over.

8/12– In the very next series, the Yankees avoided a let down and notched another walk off against the Jays, with Robbie Cano supplying an RBI single in the 11th.

8/28– Cano comes through again, this time with a 3 run homer in the 10th to defeat the White Sox 5-2.

9/8– Nick Swisher finally broke through at home with 2 home runs, including the game winner in the 9th.

9/16– Hideki Matsui tied the game in the 8th with a solo shot, and Frankie Cervelli delived an RBI single in the 9th for the victory. The Blue Jays were once again the hard luck losers.

9/29– Old friend Kyle Farnsworth shockingly blows a lead, as rookie Juan Miranda’s infield single caps off a season full of drama.

  1. And yet there has been a handful of other great games were the Yankees trailed late at home only to come back and win it in style with Mo on the mound. My personal favorite was the Sunday night game against Boston at home, when Damon and Tex homered off Josh Bard with two outs. That was a spirit crusher for Boston.

    Hard to go to a game at Yankee stadium this year where you didn’t get your money’s worth (well for Bleacher fans at least).

      • As was I, that’s the loudest I can recall hearing the New Yankee Stadium get. That place was going bananas when Tex went yard. Why do I have the feeling I probably sit right next to you in the bleachers Moshe lol.

        • I usually sit bleachers but I was in upper deck that night. Loudest I have ever heard- people were going crazy after Damon went yard, and then, before they quieted down, Tex took it to a new level.

  2. “Kyle Farnsworth shockingly blows a lead” is the funniest lie I have ever heard, and I will dare to say it is the first and last time Farnsworth, blowing a lead and shocking is in the same sentence.

  3. I was lucky to be at the Damon walkoff homer against the Twins in May and at ARod’s epic 15 inning walkoff homer against the Sox. Thanks for the great memories.
