It was the last night for Derek Jeter in the Bronx as he is hanging them up after two decades as a Yankee...
The HQ knows that is news to all of you, but the scriptwriters were out in full force.
Here's his last charge of the infield...
And, then, getting the first Yankees runs on the board with a shot to left-center
You could see Jeets taking a lot of deep breaths and the Bleacher Creatures were roll calling him at every opportunity. David Robertson gave up a game-tying homer in the top of the ninth with two outs to Steve Pearce.
So, all of Hiroki Kuroda's work went into the toilet and the Yanks had to earn it one last time.
Jeter hit a game-winning single on the bottom of the ninth driving in Antoine Richardson from second for the 6-5 win.
