The score held through the seventh, when the Blue Jays finally pulled Ricky Romero. Curtis Granderson lead off the bottom of the eighth with a double down the right field line. Teixeira grounded out, moving Granderson to third. Alex Rodriguez struck out, but Cano lined a RBI double to center. Martin singled, plating Cano and the Yankees trailed just 4-3 as they headed into the ninth.
With one out, Jorge Posada pinch hit for Eduardo Nunez. Posada drove a double to right and was replaced by Chris Dickerson on the bases. Derek Jeter grounded out, but moved Dickerson to third. Granderson then hit a single past the Blue Jays’ first and second basemen tying the game. Teixeira followed with a single to the same spot, which deflected off Rivera’s glove for the walk-off 5-4 win – and of course some pie!
