For the second time in two games, the Yankees and the Angels are deadlocked.
This time, the battle field is in Southern California, where I thought it was loud before the game. It officially reached another level when the Angels took a 4-3 lead in the seventh.
But as I wrote in the early innings of this game, the Yankees have veteran leaders up and down their lineup. Regardless of how far the momentum had shifted toward the Angels and regardless of how crazy the atmosphere got here, Jorge Posada remained unfazed. And then he calmly hit a game-tying home run over the center field wall.
This series continues to be an all-out war, but the Yankees have been in these games many times before. They are cool in the face of adversity — and a tough crowd.
