Yankees Walk Off With Win Over Rangers

Like the Yankees of old, it was by way of the home run that the men from the Bronx got it done on Tuesday night.

Tuesday night was billed as a pitcher’s duel between Kuroda and Darvish, but it soon became a story of the solo home run.  Leonys Martin homered in the third to lead off the derby and put the Rangers up 1-0.  After that advantage was extended to 2-0 on a fielder’s choice, Travis Hafner got the Yankees on the board with his own solo shot to make it 2-1.

Martin did it again in the fifth to put Texas back up by two, but the game’s fourth, fifth, and sixth solo homers would all come from the Yankees.  Brett Gardner did it in the fifth inning, Jayson Nix did it in the sixth, and with the game tied in the bottom of the ninth, Ichiro Suzuki did it in style – hitting the second walk-off home run of his career and giving the Yankees a dramatic 4-3 win.

Mariano Rivera’s scoreless top of the ninth got him the win, with Kuroda pitching 6.2 innings and allowing three runs for the no decision.

Game two of this three game series is set for Wednesday night at 7:05.  Coverage of the game begins at 6:15 on 104.5 The Team.
