Nov 1 – On The Brink: Yanks ‘Steal’ a Win, Shock Phils 7-4 with Big 9th Inning

Damon is Amazing, A-Rod and Posada Knock in 3 in the 9th

nyy-27-logo(Philadelphia, PA) – As they have done all year the Yanks used their last at-bat to drive a victory and now stand on the doorstep for a series win.  Working on 3 days rest, CC did his job and left with a 4-3 lead only to see Joba give up a tying homer to make it 44 heading into the 9th.  Then in dramatic fashion, with 2 outs, the fun began.  Damon worked a 9-pitch at bat ending with a base hit.  On the first pitch to Tex he stole 2nd and due to the overshift was able to steal 3rd base on the same play!  Aftger Tex got hit by a pitch, A-Rod hammered his biggest career hit to give the Yanks a -4 lead and Posada knocked in two more to hand Mo a 3-run lead.

A stunned Phillies crown watch Mo retire the side on 8 pitches for a 3 games to 1 lead.

Damon gave new meaning to the term 'double steal' as he swipes third base for two critical bases on the same play
