After the Yankees’ 11th walk off win of the season, Steve listed the walk offs and linked to the relevant boxscores. With one home game remaining and the Yankees walk-off total up to 15, I thought it would be fun to run through them all, with the links pointing towards replays of each exciting walk off hit.
4/22– Yankees beat A’s 9-7 on two run homer by Melky Cabrera in the 14th. It was Melky’s second home run of the day.
5/1– The Yankees score 6 runs in the last two innings to turn a 9-4 deficit into a 10-9 win over the Angels. Jorge Posada delivered the game winning two run single.
5/15– The Yankees began Walk off Weekend with a 5-4 victory over the Twins. Brett Gardner had an inside the park home run, and Melky Cabrera notched a two run single off Joe Nathan to win it.
5/16– Walk off weekend continues as A-Rod hits a two run homer in the 11th to win it.
5/17– Walk off Weekend concludes with another extra inning victory over the Twins, as Johnny Damon’s solo shot in the 10th provides the drama.
5/23– The Yankees come back against Brad Lidge and the Phils to win 5-4. A-Rod hit a two run homer to tie, and Melky’s RBI single won it.
6/12– A-Rod pops up to Luis Castillo. You know the rest.

8/7– Game of the year, as the Yankees and Red Sox remain scoreless into the 15th. Once there, A-Rod launches a 2 run homer off Tazawa, and the division race was effectively over.
8/12– In the very next series, the Yankees avoided a let down and notched another walk off against the Jays, with Robbie Cano supplying an RBI single in the 11th.
