Yankees Take Control In Anaheim

Posted by Ace Staff on October 21st, 2009 in Sports

The New York Yankees felt as though ending two games in extra innings was quite enough for this year’s American League Championship Series.  CC Sabathia allowed just one run in eight innings pitched on three days rest, as the Bronx Bombers powered up the Los Angeles Angels last night at Angel Stadium of Anaheim 10-1. 

Alex Rodriguez led the lineup with three hits, two RBIs, three runs scored, and one tall jack to left field in the fifth inning. A-Rod has been on fire throughout the entire 2009 postseason. This ALCS alone he is six for sixteen with three homers and five RBIs. His three consecutive games with a home run puts him just one away from sharing a Yankee record along with legends Lou Gehrig and Reggie Jackson.

“Well, the game slows down for you, no doubt about it,” said Rodriguez. “You feel like you want to see the ball and hit it hard and not try to do too much, but the best way I can describe it is you feel like the game is slowing down.”

The Series will feature one more game in Anaheim before moving back to New York if necessary. A.J. Burnett (Yankees) and John Lackey (Angels) are set to pitch Game 5, which is scheduled for tomorrow at 7:57 PM.
