Yankees beat Red Sox on walk-off walk

Despite another blown save from the great Mariano Rivera, the Yankees prevailed in the 10th inning on a walk-off walk by Juan Miranda to beat the Red Sox 4-3.

The Yankees’ magic number is now down to one.

Best of All: The Yankees were in need of a quality start after some awful starts this past week. Phil Hughes provided that, as he went six strong innings.

Mark Teixeira had three hits, including a key hit in the ninth-inning rally to tie the game up after Rivera blew the lead. It would’ve been Teixeira — not Miranda — up in the 10th inning with the bases loaded if Joe Girardi hadn’t pinch-run for him.

Alex Rodriguez launched another homer, his fourth of the series. He’s now just one shy of 30, a huge milestone for him.

Worst of All: The Yankees mustered just four hits through the first eight innings off Daisuke Matsuzaka. Ouch.

Coming Up: The Yankees visit Toronto for the first few days of the week and then, after an off-day Thursday, they conclude their season at Fenway Park this weekend.
