PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Will the New York Yankees take home the trophy tonight or can the Philadelphia Phillies send the World Series back to New York for Game 6?
The Yanks beat the Phillies 7-4 last night to take a 3-1 lead in the Fall Classic.
Phillies ace Cliff Lee has the job of silencing the Yankee bats tonight. A.J. Burnett starts on short rest for the Yanks.
Last night, Alex Rodriguez delivered a run-scoring double to drive in the go-ahead run.
Johnny Damon started the rally with a walk off Phils reliever Brad Lidge. With the Phillies infield in an overshift, Damon stole second base and raced to third when nobody was covering. A-Rod's hit easily scored Damon from third. Jorge Posada added two insurance runs with a single.
