Mystique and Aura dropped by for a night as Jorge Posada received a standing ovation

Jorge Posada bottom of the 9th, Yankees trailing 4-3, one out, pinch hit double v Blue Jays, final 5-4 Yankees. 5/24/11, reuters. Jorge Posada electrified the crowd with a double to right-center off Frank Francisco. He was given a standing ovation as he was removed for pinch-runner Chris Dickerson, who moved to third on a groundout by Derek Jeter.

Curtis Granderson singled home Dickerson to tie the score, then stole second base before Teixeira singled through the infield, scoring him to make a winner out of Sabathia (5-3).

Teixeira may have been the hero, but he credited Posada’s double with getting things started, saying: “That’s huge. If that doesn’t happen, it may not have ended up the way it did.”"...

"The 17-year veteran arrived at the plate to raucous applause from the 41,519 fans in attendance."...MLB.com, 11/2/2001, "Mystique, Aura, and Timely Hits," Tim Sullivan
