Who has the most "Game-Ending RBI" for the Yankees since 1957?

Thanks to Excruciating Baseball Lists, we know the answer. Here are the leaders:

For the record, A-Rod has two to his Yankees credit:

8/4/2004, 2-run home run vs Justin Duchscherer, OAK, 8-6 (11)
8/27/2005, single vs Shawn Camp, KC, 8-7

Both in August, huh? That really is Alex's month.

Bernie has a chance to catch Puff on this list. And, how 'bout that Hector Lopez!

This can't be accurate, did we all forget his walk-off vs. the Braves in June?

It's probably only through 2005.

Of course, that only limits you to home games. If someone gets a GW RBI in the ninth on the road, there still has to be a last out, then the bottom of the ninth.

Yes, it's just through 2005. And, it makes sense that these have to be home games.
