Alex Rodriguez has done it again!
This time it wasn’t with a home run, but with an RBI double
in the top of the ninth inning, with Game 4 of the World Series tied at four.
Rodriguez’ hit gave the Yankees a 5-4 lead, and put Mariano Rivera on the hill
in the bottom of the ninth.
With two outs and facing Phillies closer Brad Lidge, Rodriguez
delivered what he called the biggest hit of his life.
This game was crucial.
With the win — that Rivera sealed in
the bottom of the ninth — the Yankees took a three games to one lead in the
Fall Classic. That lead is especially important because the Yankees will be
facing Phillies ace Cliff Lee tomorrow.
The Yankees needed this game, and it was a brutal battle
until the very last pitch.
