Two dramatic ninth inning home runs lifted the New York Yankees to an unlikely win over the Texas Rangers.
- Texas Rangers: 7 (51-28)
- New York Yankees: 9 (38-39)
- American League, FINAL, Box Score
- Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY
As good as done following a poor outing from Masahiro Tanaka and virtually no offensive life through eight, the New York Yankees came alive for six runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to erase a 7-3 deficit and pull of an improbable win.
Brett Gardner’s RBI single pulled the Yanks to within three and brought the tying run to the plate. Fittingly enough, the tying run was a guy who had homered in his previous at-bat.
Foul Ball Guy is like "I got it, I got it…. OWWWWWW!!!"

The Yankee shortstop pulled a Dyson offering just over the wall in right for a walk-off two-run blast to win the game for the Bombers.
Rather than trying to stave off a detrimental sweep in tomorrow afternoon’s ballgame, they will be looking for a split and a trip back to .500 land. The two blasts were not only a game changer for the Bronx Bombers, they were potentially a season changer as well.
