NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 29: Nick Swisher #33 jumps into the arms of Juan Miranda #72 of the New York Yankees after Miranda hit the game winning RBI single against the Kansas City Royals during the game on September 29, 2009 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx borough of New York City.

Put win #102 in the books. Juan Miranda delivered the Yankees 15th walk-off of the year. The Yankees were down 3-2 in the 9th inning, and Crazy Kyle Farnsworth entered the game. You could have predicted that thiswould happen, but it never gets old. It’s a little payback for all those games he blew when he was with the Yanks.

Swisher went yard on the game. Teixeira hit a home run as well, which puts him at 39 on the year. Would be nice if he can get one more to make it an even 40.

A.J. Burnett pitched really well tonight, but wasn’t able to pick up the win. His pitching line was: 6.1IP 3H 2R 1ER 3BB 8K. David Robertson made his return, and recorded two outs in the 8th inning, before being replaced by Bruney. Brian Bruney wound up picking up the win, as his season record moves to (W-L) 5-0.
