Oct 31 – Happy Halloween! Yanks Up 2-1 with 8-5 Win Over Phils

A-Rod, Matsui, Swish all Homer, Andy Settles Down

ny-jersey-logo(Philadelphia, PA) –  Jimmy Rollins prediction of Phillies in 5 will be incorrect and maybe it can be the other way around but time will tell.  After a rocky start and falling behind early 3-0, Pettitte settled in, A-Rod hit a momentum swinging 2-run homer and the bats came alive for a solid 8-5 win over the host Phillies in Game 3.

Swisher and Matsui would drive long solo shots to help pace the Yanks to an eventual 8-4 lead.

Andy gets his 4th WS win, Joba and Marte pitched very well in the 7th and 8th and only Phil Hughes struggles continued giving up a solo homer in the 9th and requiring Mo to come in for the final 2 outs.

More to follow.
