After beating the Anaheim Angels last night, the New York Yankees may be well on their way to yet another World Series—the game leaves the team with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven ALCS. The victory was hard won, coming at the end of a 13-inning game, five of which took place in icy rain. Long innings of deadlock were eventually interrupted by postseason star Alex Rodriguez’s last-minute heroics in the form of an 11th-inning home run. “He's been clutch,” said Mariano Rivera, “He's just doing what he's supposed to do. That doesn't surprise me from him.” Rivera threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings and the game was won when Yankee Jerry Hairston Jr. got a walk on an Angels' error.
