NEW YORK - MAY 01: Melky Cabrera #53 and Mark Teixeira #25 of the New York Yankees celebrate at home plate after teammate Jorge Posada #20 hit a two run single to win the game in the 9th inning against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim during their game on May 1, 2009 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx borough of New York City.

The Yankees are starting to make a habit of these walk-off victories. After a game-tying two run home run, off the bat of Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano singled, stole second, and was singled in by Melky Cabrera. What followed was what has quickly become a Yankee tradition.

Shortly after the scoring run came come, AJ Burnett crept along the dugout and sought out his next pie victim. The Yankees' starting pitcher then delivered the “pie job” to Melky—but he also managed to cream Robinson Cano at the same time. Burnett has made more of a splash in New York for throwing pies than for throwing pitches.  Hopefully, that will change soon. One question still remains: will Burnett slam a pie in Jeter’s face when he gets a walk off hit? Only time will tell. With the Yankees penchant for comeback wins, we can only assume AJ will get the opportunity to unload a shaving cream bomb sometime in the near future.
