PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Alex Rodriguez delivered the biggest hit of his life, a go-ahead, two-out double in the ninth inning off Brad Lidge and the New York Yankees took advantage of Johnny Damon's alert dash to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 on Sunday night for a 3-1 lead in the World Series.
The Yankees moved within one win of that elusive 27th championship - and first since 2000.
A.J. Burnett tries to close it out Monday night, opposed by Game 1 winner Cliff Lee.
