Three great walkoffs last night

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.
