Yankees Lead Series 3-1

Posted by Ace Staff on November 2nd, 2009 in Sports

Alex Rodriguez knocked in Johnny Damon for the go-ahead run after a heads up double steal in the top of the 9th inning, as the New York Yankees rallied to win 7-4 over the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday at Citizens Bank Park. Now holding a 3-1 advantage in the 2009 World Series, the Yankees are just one win away from claiming their 27th championship.

“There’s no question – I’ve never had a bigger hit,” said Rodriguez.”The one time I got hit in yesterday’s game, my first at-bat, kind of woke me up a little bit and just reminded me, ‘Hey, this is the World Series, let’s get it going a little bit.’” It couldn’t be a better time for A-Rod to find his rhythm heading into tonight’s game against the left-handed Cliff Lee, who dominated the Yanks with 10 K’s during Philadelphia’s 6-1 Game 1 victory in New York.

AJ Burnett will get the call to start on the mound for the Yankees. Burnett is 1-0 with a 3.55 ERA so far this postseason. Game time is set for 7:57 PM. If necessary Game 6 and 7 will take place in New York Wednesday and Thursday night.
