• On this date in 1987, Mike Pagliarulo hit a walk-off grand slam in the ninth inning against the Twins, just one of eight Yankees to accomplish the feat. On this date in 1994, Danny Tartabull, Mike Stanley and Gerald Williams hit consecutive home runs in an 8-4 win over the Red Sox. On this date in 2010, Mark Teixeira homered three times at Fenway Park, joining Lou Gehrig as the only Yankees to homer three times against the Red Sox in a single game. Gehrig did it on June 23, 1927.
