Mark Teixeira hit a Game 2 Walkoff Home Run and helped lead the Yankees to a ALDS sweep of the Twins

With Mariano River’s last pitch, which produced a weak groundball to Derek Jeter, it appeared as though no time had passed since the Yankees teams of the late 90s and early 2000s dominated postseason play and earned the opportunities to play deep into October. This groundball, which Derek Jeter threw over to Mark Teixeira at first, concluded a 4-1 Yankees win over the Twins on Sunday night, giving the Yankees a 3-0 ALDS series sweep over the feisty Twins.
