New York Yankees 6- Boston Red Sox 4

Everyone by now should know that there is no easy win when it comes the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry. This game was no easy win for the Yankees. It took an 8th inning baseloaded walk by Nick Johnson to take the lead for good and Robinson Cano 9th inning solo home run gave the Yankees insurance. It was sloppy game defensively with 3 errors, but a win is a win. The big error that hurt was Marco Scutaro error in the 8th inning which would've ended the inning with the game still tied, but no give the Yankees an extra out and they will take advantage which they did. In the 9th inning, Mariano Rivera seal the win with a save like usual.

A.J. Burnett first start of the season was ok. He allowed 3 runs in 5 innings. He walked only one and struck out five, but he

We started this decade with the New York Yankees as World Series Champions in 2000. We end this decade in 2009 with the New York Yankees as World Series Champions.

What a game. With all the speculation that using 3 pitchers on 3 days rest could cost them, but in end it resulted in World Series title.

Andy Pettite on 3 days rest pitched great. He didn't over do it and pitched smartly. He earned his 18th career postseason win. He won all 3 clinching series games. Simply Amazing.

Yankees offense was really Hideki Matsui. He went 8 for 13 in the World Series. He had 6 RBIs in the clinching game, unbelievable. He went to be the World Series MVP. The first time Japan born player ever won it.

Mariano Rivera shuts down the Phillies for the final 5 outs. How fitting a new stadium, Andy Pettite

What started out as a bad start to the day for New York fans when the New York Giants got killed by the Philadelphia Eagles (BOO!!!) turn out to be a great day because The New York Yankees are one win away from winning the World Series.

C.C. Sabathia was ok in his outing, but has problems go against the Phillies. I think he throws way to many pitches to phillies hitters and he can't figure out Chase Utley, but Sabathia kept the Yankees in lead and could've deserved a win. If anyone would've said that the Yankees would be up 3-1 in the World Series and C.C. Sabathia would not have a win and pitched okay then I would've thought you are crazy.

I'm surprised that the Yankees offense didn't get more off of Joe Blanton. He pitched okay as well.

Joba Chamberlain certainly had good stuff in

The rain and held up and the Yankees take back homefield on the road. The Yankees now lead in the World Series 2-1.

Pettite another win in the postseason. I believe he has 17 now. It didn't looked that way in the first two innings as he threw a lot of pitches and struggled, but after that he was great. See that is one thing about Andy Pettite that you count on is when he struggles, he will limit the damage, keep his team in the game, and grind out innings. He did all that and pitched 6 innings. Probably "greatest hitter in postseason history," he hit an RBI single which surprised me and probably everyone in the world because I thought he was going to bunt. Great night for Andy Pettite and the Yankees.

As for the Yankees offense, they exploded. Alex Rodriguez 2 run home run got the team

YANKEES SWEEP TWINS!!! The Twins has just played their last game at the Metrodome. Yankees has had just timely hitting in late innings. Alex Rodriguez HR in 7th to tie it and Jorge Posada go ahead HR. Andy Pettite pitched great as usual in postseason play. How about those Twins. Can it get that bad. They can't hold leads, poor baserunning, and the inability to shut down the Yankees in late innings. Nick Punto, probably the best producer in the series rounded 3rd after Denard Span hit a chopper to 2nd, Jeter throws home and Posada throws to the 3rd to get Punto. Punto never looked at his 3rd base coach until it was too late. Pavano pitched a heck of a ball game, but like the other Twins pitchers, they could not shut down the Yankees when they get the lead. Rivera got a 4 out save to sweep

Hello, This is Alan.

The Twins has given the Yankees some competition and hard fought wins. Even though the Yankees won game 1 by the score of 7-2, the Twins still manage to make the Yankees feel uneasy at times. In game 2 they that especially, but the Yankees prevail in games 1 and 2 and now have a commanding 2-0. They will go for the sweep on Sunday at the Metrodome with Andy Pettite going against Carl Pavano.

The Twins has major issues. They can't seem to hold on to leads against NY. They have had leads in all nine games, but fail to hold on to them, four walk offs in those nine games.

Game 1 starter CC Sabathia was good, not great. He gave up some hits, but he prevail to allow one earn run and a win

Game 2 starter Burnett was good. He gave way too many walks and hit a couple batters.
