Yankees Win World Series

The Yankees won their 27th World Series Thursday, after beating the Phillies 7 to 3 in Game 6, with a crowd of 50,315 people looking on. Pedro Martinez managed to last four innings, giving up four runs and three hits to the Yankees, as fans flashed yesterday's New York Post poster of Martinez in a diaper and chanted "Who's Your Daddy?" Hideki Matsui, who knocked in six runs to tie the single-game World Series record, was named MVP. Andy Pettitte pitched almost six innings for the Yankees, and left the game to a standing ovation. After the win, Alex Rodriguez wept, moved no doubt, not just by the win, but because he will no longer have to answer questions about choking in the post-season. A ticker tape parade for the Yankees is scheduled for Friday.
