This Day In New York Yankees History 8/28

On this day in 2007 the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 5-3 but I am not so sure that many people noticed. Everyone was too busy watching the squirrel that was running up and down the foul pole and received multiple standing ovations when shown on the big screen at Yankees Stadium.

On this day in 2008 the New York Yankees were playing the Boston Red Sox for the final time in the old Yankees Stadium. Trailing 2-0 late in the game the Yankees sent up Jason Giambi to pinch hit and he responded by hitting a two run home run to tie the game. The Yankees would later walk off the Red Sox winning the game 3-2 on a Giambino RBI single avoiding the sweep and keeping their playoff hopes alive.
