"It was remarkable," said Cishek, the Marlins' closer.
Cishek is from Falmouth, Mass., and he grew up a Red Sox fan. But the moment was too much to ignore.
"I tweeted something last night," Cishek said. "It was literally the first time I threw my hands up and cheered for the Yankees. I grew up a Red Sox fan and everything. You really couldn't have scripted it any better. That's why sports are so great. You can't plan for something like that."
"No one is trying to give up a hit," Cishek said. "[Yankees closer David] Robertson is not trying to give up three runs so Jeter could walk off. You could just see it all unfolding. You see a tie ballgame. You see Jeter was coming up third. We were like, 'Watch, he's probably going to do something crazy.'
"Sure enough, the leadoff guy singles, advances on a bunt, and Jeter is up. You just knew something awesome was going to happen."
