Last night’s game was the 10th that I attended this season, and brought my 2009 record to 5-5. Considering I started the season 0-4, I feel OK about finishing at .500, although I really wanted to secure a winning record after last night’s game, and the Yankees blew it.
The Yankees wound up with walk-off wins in 26% of their home wins. Of my five wins, two were of the walk-off variety, which means I saw walk-offs in 40% of the victories I attended.
Given that the Yankees finished the season going 57-24 at home, it’s pretty crazy that I attended more than 20% of those losses — one of which was a rare extra-inning loss on May 6 to the Rays, another a tie game in which Mariano Rivera gave up the lead in the 9th inning a day later and last night’s game in which the potential tying and winning runs were in scoring position. Crazy to think that the Yankees could have had three more walk-off wins this year.
Here’s a list of the games I attended at Yankee Stadium in 2009:
|12||4.18.09||Cleveland||Wang v. Carmona||L, 22-4|
|27||5.06.09||Tampa Bay||Burnett v. Sonnanstine||L, 4-3|
|28||5.07.09||Tampa Bay||Pettitte v. Niemann||L, 8-6|
|42||5.22.09||Philadelphia||Burnett v. Myers||L, 7-3|
|61||6.12.09||New York Mets||Chamberlain v. Hernandez||W, 9-8*|
|139||9.07.09||Tampa Bay||Burnett v. Sonnanstine||W, 11-1|
|144||9.13.09||Baltimore||Sabathia v. Guthrie||W, 13-3|
|147||9.16.09||Toronto||Gaudin v. Tallet||W, 5-4*|
|155||9.26.09||Boston||Sabathia v. Matsuzaka||W, 3-0|
|159||9.30.09||Kansas City||Chamberlain v. Tejeda||L, 4-3|
I didn’t even realize I’d seen Burnett v. Sonnanstine twice before compiling this list. Mercifully I avoided all of Sergio Mitre’s outings, although unfortunately I never got to see my boy Hughes start. Something to look forward to in 2010, after we’ve finished hoisting that 27th World Championship banner.
