Yankees Win AL Pennant

Monday, October 26, 2009

Like I'm going to get any homework and sleep done now...might as well do the postgame recap.

WP: Pettitte
LP: Saunders
S: Rivera

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Andy Pettitte gets the nod in this one. 6.1 IP giving up 1 run and striking out 6.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Johnny Damon's two-run single in the bottom of the fourth to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Scott Kazmir's throwing error in the eighth inning, scoring Robinson Cano, giving the Yankees a 4-2 lead. The Angels had just brought the game within 1 run, but Kazmir blew up in the fourth, erasing any hope the Angels had to make a comeback.


  • Andy Pettitte earned his 16th career postseason win, and fifth elimination game win, making him the winningest pitcher in each category.

  • The Yankees clinched their 40th pennant today. An MLB record, obviously.

  • CC Sabathia was named the ALCS MVP.

Game 1 of the 2009 World Series is Wednesday. It will be CC Sabathia vs Cliff Lee at Yankee Stadium. I have the privelege of attending this game...with a Red Sox fan rooting for the Phillies. Should be fun.

See Ya!
