Wallet Card at Yankee Stadium

I don't always get to go to three Yankee games in a year, and had never seen them win three games in one season before. Looks like Wallet Card is definitely bringing them luck.
When I snapped this photo, the Yankees looked headed to a sure loss. It was the bottom of the sixth and the Yankees had managed only one hit against their nemesis, Chris Archer, who was 5-0 lifetime against the Yankees with an ERA under two. However, Ellsbury hit this very pitch into right field for a single, and after Gardner struck out and Beltran walked Brian McCann hit a 3-run home run to tie the game, and on the very next pitch A-Rod hit one out as well, and the Yankees were up 4-3 with a lead they would not relinquish - after a couple of insurance runs and some bullpen shakiness the Yankees squeaked by with a very exciting 6-4 triumph.
