It was 11 years ago today, Victorino hit to second base…
Yes, indeed, apologies to The Beatles, but it is now officially 11 years since the Yankees brought home No. 27!
On Nov. 4, 2009, the Yankees defeated the Phillies, 7-3, at Yankee Stadium in Game 6 of the 2009 World Series to clinch their 27th (and most recent) world championship. Even though it wasn’t a save situation, the Yankees of course brought in Mo for the ninth, and with two out and a runner on second, he got Shane Victorino to ground to second, and the Yankees were back on top!
