What a game. An isnstant classic. With enough drama to turn this game into a soap opera, you know this game was spectacular. Mariano Rivera pitching out of an almost sure loss. A-Rod taking a pitch to Monuement Park in right center for two runs. Joe Nathen throwing the ball away and putting the winning run at third. (He stranded the runner though.) Phil Cuzzi taking a double away from Joe Mauer. David Robertson getting out of a bases-loaded, no out jam. And finally, the solo shot byt Teixeira that gave the Yankees the 4-3 win. Peittitte will go up against Pavano for Game 3.
And there is absolutely no doubt that A-Rod and Teixera can handle the pressure.
