That ball was gone.
After coming back down to earth in the first two World
Series games, it appears as if Alex Rodriguez has regained his magical swing.
A-Rod’s fourth inning, two-run home run was huge for several
It was the first hit the Yankees got off of Cole Hamels.
Before A-Rod went yard, Hamels was cruising and his confidence was probably
higher than at any time this postseason. A-Rod’s homer will likely bring him
down a notch — and the rest of the Yankees will benefit from that.
A-Rod’s homer also silenced the crowd for the first time
tonight. I can actually hear myself think now. The momentary lack of noise will
re-energize the Yankees.
And, of course, Rodriguez put the Yankees back in the game.
