The script was written. It was just up to Chase Headley to play along.
The newest Yankee had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the 12th, bases loaded, 2 out. No score, as the Year of the Infield Pop-Up Revival continues all across the land. Francisco Cervelli had just lined out to Adrian Beltre. Couldn’t hit a ball much harder and for a brief moment, Cervelli and the Yanks must have felt that the game was won. But he hit it to the wrong place. Headley had his Yankee moment all lined-up but he grounded out to second instead.
He got another chance in the bottom of the 14th though. First and third, 1 out, score tied at 1. Headley got a sinker moving away and he took it to left. Good enough for a single and the game-winning hit.
