The New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies to win the World Series 7-3, with much of the credit going to Hideki Matsui’s World Series record six RBIs

    Victorino, amid flashing bulbs, grounds to second. Yankees win 7-3.

    • 9:50 pm
    • Ninth inning

    Shane Victorino is battling Rivera like a man who does not want to be the last out in the World Series.

  • Rivera almost hit Victorino in the knee. Down by four, with a man on and Utley and Co. coming up, should Shane have moved out of the way?

    • Ninth inning

    Good grief, Rivera is making us sweat. It is not possible to sweat when up by four.

    • 9:48 pm
    • Ninth inning

    Rollins down. Two out.

Tonight’s the night…..gonna be alriiiight…I love you Yankees ain’t nobody gonna stop us now….yes Mrs MiM HAS had a glass of wine pregame, lol!!

First pitch is 7:57 pm EST


(…)On the mound, the Yankees will start Andy Pettitte, who clinched Game 6 of the ALCS in very similar circumstances. Last round, the Yankees were up 3-1 on the Angels, then lost a tough Game 5 at Anaheim even though they had a chance to win it in the ninth inning. They then came home with a 3-2 lead, Pettitte on the mound and took the pennant.

One difference this round is that Pettitte will be pitching on just three days’ rest. How well he handles that may well determine if there’s a game tomorrow.

The Phillies will start Pedro Martinez, who fared well in Game 2 last week despite being outpitched by A.J. Burnett in what was a must-win game for the Yankees. Martinez now takes the hill tonight in a must-win game for the Phillies.

If the Yankees clinch tonight, it’ll be their record 27th world championship, their first since 2000 when they beat the Mets in five games. That capped an absurd run of three straight championships and four in five years (1996, 1998, 1999, 2000). The Yankees then nearly won it again in 2001 but fell in Game 7 of the World Series to the Diamondbacks. And in 2003, they went to the Series again but lost in six games to the Marlins….
