Tbt: Yankees beat Blue Jays in thriller

With a big series against the first place Toronto Blue Jays coming up, here’s a throwback to August 14th, when the Yankees beat the new-look Blue Jays in dramatic fashion. Toronto had been on an 11 game winning streak, looking like the best team in baseball after acquiring David Price and Troy Tulowitzki at the trade deadline. The late victory gave the Yankees sole possession of first place in the AL East again.

The Yankees were down 3-0, and David Price was mowing down New York’s batters. But in the eighth inning, the Bombers rallied and tacked on four runs, including an RBI double from Chase Headley. However, Carlos Beltran‘s pinch-hit three run bomb to right center field off of Aaron Sanchez was the most memorable moment.

Ivan Nova struggled a bit but was strong in the seventh inning, which lead to a shutout inning from Dellin Betances. Closer Andrew Miller came in the bottom of the ninth inning to seal the deal after using 12 pitches to strike out Troy Tulowitzki to end the game, almost like poetry.

This game is a reminder that anything can happen, no matter who is struggling, who is on fire, or whomever is in first place.
