The Yankees had a comeback for the ages, and this is what it was like to be in the stands

Here's why you never leave baseball games early.

Yankees trail 7-3 entering the bottom of the 9th. 

Why am I a Yankees fan? They're two games behind the second wild card spot one week, then three games below .500 the next. Time to tear it down. Sell everything. To make things worse, I didn't even get a lemonade. Why is the lemonade stand cash only? What is this, Amish country?

Rob Refsnyder singles to center field. Runner on first. No outs.

A lot to like about Refsnyder. Solid, young bat who seems to have his head on straight. I hope they don't trade him at the deadline. God, why did I eat all those fries. 

Jacoby Ellsbury walks. Runners on first and second. No outs.

Whoop-dee-doo, this would have been fantastic...you know...all game. This has been the Yankees problem all year long—their offense is just so inconsistent. Great one game, putrid the next.

Brett Gardner singles to center, Refsnyder and Ellsbury advance. Error allows Refsnyder to score. Yankees cut deficit 7-4. No outs.

Alright, at least the score is a little more respectable. No way Yankees get back in this game. Four runs just to tie it up? Whatever, at least I was part of a sick wave that circled the stadium five times.

Alex Rodriguez lines out at second. One out. Gardner and Ellsbury still on first and second. 

Classic A-Rod. Maybe if I yell loud enough Adrian Beltre can hear me. "HEY BELTRE... YOU'RE UGLY." Damn, I sure showed him!

Brian McCann steps to the plate. Gardner and Ellsbury still on first and second

Huh, this is actually interesting. He hit a solo homer a couple innings ago so what if...nah, no way. Two home runs in one game? Especially right now? 

McCann goes deep to right field, bats Ellsbury and Gardner in. Game tied, 7-7. One out.

WHAT. IT'S TIED? DID THAT JUST HAPPEN? McCANN, YOU MAGNIFICENT HUMAN. I'LL NEVER DOUBT YOU AGAIN. HEY YOU THERE...HIGH FIVE ME! YOU WANT A HIGH FIVE TOO? HIGH FIVES FOR EVERYONE! OH MAN, I LOVE THIS SONG: "I GET KNOCKED DOWN...BUT I GET UP AGAIN...YOU'RE NEVER GONNA GET ME DOWN."

Starlin Castro walks. Leading run at first, one out.

Is this real life? Can they pull this off? Who's up next, Didi? OK, I like that. No madame, I will NOT sit down. OK, I'll sit down, but only because the nice attendant asked me to. It doesn't matter, because if something happens, I'm just going to stand up again anyway.

Didi Gregorius drives walk-off two-run home run to right field. Yankees win, 9-7.

DIDI. WE WON. WHAT ARE THESE EMOTIONS. I CAN'T STOP PUMPING MY FIST. THEY DID IT. DIDI DID IT. IS THAT SIX RUNS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE NINTH? THIS IS UNREAL.

Gregorius gets gatorade shower during post-game interview.

"I WANT TO BE A PART OF IT...NEW YORK, NEW YORK."

Wow. What a game.
