YANKEE COMEBACK WINS ARE ADDING UP
Their first five games started poorly. But since then, the Yankees have started a great winning trend, winning 10 of the next 14. During that stretch, there were four games in which the Yankees were either tied or trailing in the 7th inning or later, and came back to win. They are 10-0 in games when they have the lead going into the 7th inning. In three of those games, they have given up the lead and came back to win the game anyway. This has huge implications for the team. Despite missing their biggest stars - Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, and Alex Rodriguez - the Yankees are finding ways to win when the chips are down. The latest hero was Ichiro Suzuki, who came up with a big 2-run single with two outs in the ninth.
Aaron Boone and Jim Leyritz will forever be Yankees heroes for their dramatic home runs.
So fasten your seat belts, because I get the feeling that we are about to see something special from this team!
