Yankees ride Curtis Granderson to walk-off win

Four hits and the game-winning run by Curtis Granderson led the Yankees to victory to even the series with the Blue Jays. The Yankees were trailing 4-1 heading into the eighth, but rallied back to win on Mark Teixeira’s ninth-inning single.

Scoreboard Says:
Yankees 5, Blue Jays 4
Win: CC Sabathia
Loss: Frank Francisco

Old Reliable:
Jorge Posada delivered a huge pinch-hit double in the ninth to start the rally. A hit like that could start a hot streak for the struggling veteran.

The Grandy Man Can
Granderson posted four hits in five at-bats, including a game-tying RBI single in the ninth. He stole second, and then hustled home after Teixeira’s single dribbled into the outfield to end it.

Hits, Not Homers:
The Yankees cracked 13 hits, and only one was a homer (a solo shot by Russell Martin in the second). The Yankees won because of their rallies, not their homer. They must have saw the charts I linked to earlier today.

Game Ball:
Grandy, for delivering hit after hit after hit.
