MLB: World Series, 2009: Game 2
Who’s your daddy?!?
The New York Yankees drew even with a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in game two of the World Series. Yankees starter A.J. Burnett gave up the first and only run in the second inning off a Matt Stairs base hit. In a classic pitchers’ duel, Pedro Martinez gave up two earned runs in six innings but in a cause just good enough to lose as the Yankees brought in Mariano Rivera in the 8th inning to pitch a two inning save.
It’s on to Philadelphia Saturday night for Halloween where Andy Pettitte will take on Cole Hamel for game three.
It’s perhaps too soon to make anything of this, but Alex Rodriguez who was so brilliant with the bat in the playoffs is hitless so far in the World Series.
