Jason Giambi Pulls Yankees To Victory

7 06 2008

Pinch-hitter Jason Giambi connected for a two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, rallying the New York Yankees to a 9-8 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.

Giambi’s drive off closer B.J. Ryan into the right-field upper deck — just inside the foul pole — capped New York’s biggest comeback win this season. In erasing a 7-2 deficit, the Yankees overcame another poor outing by Chien-Ming Wang and a key error by center fielder Melky Cabrera.
