No. 5: Yankees power back to beat Boston (2012)
A day after the Yankees spoiled the Red Sox 100th year anniversary of Fenway Park celebrations with a road victory, it appeared Boston would get their revenge.
The Red Sox took a commanding 9-0 lead into the top of the sixth. That’s when the Yankees hit finally found the scoreboard on what felt like a harmless solo home run by Mark Teixeira. Little did anyone at Fenway Park know, this would be beginning of an all-time great rally.
In the top of the seventh, the Yankees crept closer as Nick Swisher and Teixeira both slammed three-run home runs over the Green Monster to cut the Boston lead to 9-8.
Then in the eighth, the Yankees pulled ahead as Swisher hit a two-run double to put the Bombers ahead. The Yankees would at to their lead later in the inning as Teixeira drove in two more with a ground-rule double, Russell Martin hit a two-run double, and Derek Jeter hit an RBI single to give the Yankees 15 unanswered runs that they’d ride to a 15-9 victory.
