Three great walkoffs last night

by Bill Chuck on July 31, 2013

Alex Presley‘s walkoff single off the glove of diving shortstop Pete Kozma with two outs in the 11th inning gave the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in the first game of a doubleheader and the Buccos had no need for dramatics as they swept the twinbill, 6-0. The Cardinals’ losing streak is now a season-high six straight games. The Cards are now 1.5 games behind the Pirates. Pittsburgh is a season-high 22 games over .500 (64-42).

Mark Ellis delivered a walkoff single with two outs in the bottom of the 9th giving the Dodgers a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees. Since the All-Star break, Ellis has has hit safely in all 11 of his team’s games, hitting .415.

It was a wild one in Texas capped by a field goal (read: three-run walkoff homer) by Leonys Martin in the 10th inning to give the Rangers a 14-11 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Monday night, Geovany Soto hit a 9th inning walkoff home run, after fellow catcher A.J. Pierzynski had also gone deep off Los Angeles Angels closer Ernesto Frieri to give the Rangers a 4-3 victory.
