Josh Donaldson hits walk-off grand slam vs. Rays
August 18, 2022
NEW YORK — The Yankees’ attack has been waiting for a sigh of relief for several days, anxiously awaiting that one big blow that would open the floodgates.
They finally got it through Wednesday night, allowing the 42,512 fans on the fringes – at least those waiting for heavy rain in the seventh inning – to express some of their own emotions.
After Aroldis Chapman served a three-run double to Francisco Mejia in the top of the 10th, the Yankees answered right back to load the bases for Josh Donaldson, who drove a walk-off grand slam against Jalen Beeks for an 8-7 win .
The Bronx crowd—who had booed the home side just minutes earlier—started into a frenzy not yet seen during the homestand.
Anthony Rizzo’s leadoff homerun in the eighth inning marked a four-run comeback, enabling New York to break its three-game losing streak and avoid the club’s first sweep at home this season.
