Constantly criticized for his weak postseason performances, Yankees star Alex Rodriguez hit a game-tying two-run home run Friday in the ninth inning to give his team the extra time needed to overcome the Minnesota Twins. Mark Teixeira won the game with an 11th-inning homer of his own as the Yankees moved to 2-0 in the series. It was an especially frustrating loss for Minnesota as earlier in the 11th inning an umpire blew a call on a Joe Mauer line drive that appeared to be solidly in fair territory despite being ruled a foul ball. On the same night, the Anaheim Angels pushed the Red Sox to the brink of elimination thanks to a strong pitching performance by Jared Weaver against Boston ace Josh Beckett.
