Yankees Pull Ahead in Series

It’s two down and two to go for the New York Yankees, who beat the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday night with a combination of focused pitching from Andy Pettitte and big swings from Nick Swisher, after rain delayed the game for 80 minutes. Armed with a lead going into the final innings, the team’s closers were able to the keep the Phillies at bay and took a 2-1 Series lead. The World Series continues Sunday night with a well-rested CC Sabathia taking the mound against Joe Blanton in Philadelphia.
