World Series Game 2: NY Yankees take it 3-1

2009ws

Yanks take Game 2,  3-1

Series tied 1 game a piece

WSJ blogged the game here

Derek-Jeter-celebrates-du-001

Here is the moment I yelled at the TV:

10:40: I need to know if Derek Jeter tried to sacrifice with two strikes, or if Joe Girardi signaled him to do it. Girardi should be the first manager fired in the middle of a World Series if it was him.

And Yankees fan deluxe Ben Kabak of the great Yankees blog River Avenue Blues notes that Jeter bunts on his own all the time with two strikes. Yanks fans should hope The Captain doesn’t become The Manager in 10 years.

10:38: Tim McCarver: “At 0-2, there is no way Jeter is still bunting. Too good a hitter.”

Jeter bunts foul and is out. — Fitzgerald

NINTH INNING: Angels 7, Yankees 6. FINAL SCORE

Top: You just knew this inning was going to get interesting, regardless. Even after Brian Fuentes retired the first two Yankees in order, you just knew something would happen.

And of course it did.

Alex Rodriguez was intentionally walked, Hideki Matsui walked and Robinson Cano was hit by a pitch. Then it came down to Nick Swisher vs. Brian Fuentes.

And of course you knew the count would go full.

So it came down to one pitch, and….

Swisher popped it up.

Angels win.

To Game 6 in the Bronx, we go.

ALCS – NYY destroy Anaheim Angels 10-1 in Game 4: Yanks now 1 game away from the series!!

WOOHOO!!!!

NYPost:

…Sabathia and Rodriguez — with help from Johnny Damon and Melky Cabrera — drove the Yankees past the Angels, 10-1, in front of 45,160 at Angel Stadium….

The victory, marred by two blown calls by umpires, puts the Yankees in a commanding, 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series that resumes tomorrow night when A.J. Burnett faces Angels ace John Lackey.

…Long considered a player who was suffocated by the postseason attention and pressure, Rodriguez is shedding that label. He went 3-for-4, homered, drove in two runs, scored three and stole a base.

“I will say that in other postseasons I failed, sometimes miserably,” said Rodriguez, who has hit five homers this postseason, one shy of Bernie Williams‘ club record. “It certainly feels good to come through for my team and help my team win.”

Damon added a two-run homer in the eighth, and Cabrera went 3-for-4 and drove in four runs.

Through five innings Sabathia had given up a run and threw only 63 pitches. He allowed the first two Angels to reach leading off the sixth, but induced Juan Rivera to bang into a 6-3 double play and watched Howie Kendrick‘s liner land in Mark Teixeira‘s glove, getting him back in a groove that saw him retire the last eight hitters he faced….
