Yankees walk-off for second win, 6-5

The Yanks rallied for five runs in the bottom of the ninth to come back from a 5-1 deficit (largely due to two errors). Russell Martin drew a four-pitch walk from former Yankee farm-hand Lance Pendleton with the bases-full and two outs to win the game. 

Outside of the ninth inning, the offense struggled again, posting one run in eight frames (an A-Rod double and two groundouts). Derek Jeter finally looked good at the plate, hitting two line drives (though one was caught).

The pitching was again excellent. A.J. Burnett threw two scoreless innings (helped by a GIDP with runners on the corners and one out). Overall, the six pitchers allowed one earned run (via Boone Logan). Joba didn't look nearly as sharp as his first time out, but escaped unscathed. Four runs were scored in the seventh when the Yankee defense broke down, committing three errors.

Frankie Cervelli left the game after fouling a ball off his foot. He's day-to-day. 

1 p.m. game tomorrow against the Rays.
