Yankees 3, Rays 2
Nick Swisher's homers, his 25th and 26th, were just his fourth and fifth at home. (AP)
The Yankees' 13th walk-off win of 2009 began and ended with homers by Nick Swisher, who helped New York jump to 40 games over .500 and become the first 90-win team in the Majors. Derek Jeter, hitless again in four at-bats, remains three hits shy of tying Lou Gehrig's club mark.
