Miraculous Yankee Comeback Caps Good Sunday

I'll admit, I wasn't too keen on watching the Yankees-Dodgers game.  I decided I was going to largely do something else with my Sunday. By the time I'd gotten home and finished watching some TV I'd DVR'd, I realized I would probably need to check up on the Bombers game, see some highlights. This was 11:40 p.m. Not only was the game still going on, but the Yankees had reversed a 5-0 deficit to turn a 6-6 tie into extra innings. I was hooked on through Robinson Cano's two-run homer to give the Yanks the lead, and Mariano Rivera's typical 10th to cap off the victory, one Alex Rodriguez called "a miracle."
