5. Derek Jeter Caps Off Comeback- May 9, 2004
Derek Jeter, who batted .317 in 2003, was experiencing a cataclysmic slump that was unlike the Captain.
Entering play on Mother’s Day of 2004, Jeter was hitting a dreary .181 but helped cap off a Yankees comeback from down six runs.
With a runner on, Jeter cranked a Julio Mateo fastball 412 feet to center field to knot the game up at six apiece. That dinger set up Hideki Matsui’s eventual go-ahead RBI on a sac-fly the next inning.
