Game three: New York Yankees 8 Philadelphia Phillies 5
Manager Charlie Manuel of the Philadelphia Philies sent his young lefty Cole Hamels to the mound to start for the Phillies.
Manager Joe Girardi of the New York Yankees countered with his veteran Andy Pettitte also a lefty.
Pettitte had a shaky start and after two it was the Phillies three and the Yankees 0. Pettitte settled in and started to calmly take charge of the pitching chores of the Yankees and the Yankees bat started to rattle.
Jason Werth of the Phillies connected for two solo home runs for the Phillies and in total the Phillies were able to scratch together a total of five runs for the rain delayed game number three.
A Rodriquez homer for the Yankees with one mate aboard not only put the Yankees on the board it was a homer into the lens of the camera in the right field stands which rebounded back onto the playing field.
Umpires had to retire to the instant replay room to review the Halloween camera caper to determine if Rodriquez had a stand up double or was it an out of the Park homer. Call on the field was a double but replay review declared it a Home Run. So trick or treat instant replay is hard to beat.
This replay trick is the first ever in World Series History. Game four November 1, World Series 2009 Yankees-Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia
Game four: New York Yankees 7 Philadelphia Phillies 4
Joe Blanton got the call for the Phillies while the Yankees sent forth their Ace and the highest paid pitcher in Major League Baseball C.C. Sabathia.
The Yankees got to Blanton early and roughed him up for two runs in the first inning. The big lick provided by Johnny Damon with a double.
Game was nip and tuck through seven innings and the drama really mounted with the Yankees holding a 4 to 3 advantage going to the bottom of the eight when Feliz the third sacker of the Phillies drove one heck of a shot into the left field stands to tie it.
All tied at the end of 8th so the drama builds the Yankees played Yankees baseball their half of the 9th with two outs Johnny Damon smacked a clean single to left center field.
Remember two outs Damon of the Yankees steals second base and executed a picture perfect pop-up slide at second. The throw from the catcher carrying the shortstop to the first base side of the bag to take the catchers throw.
Damon showing what heads up base running is about saw that the third baseman of the Phillies had left third base uncovered and using his pop-up slide just kept right on running and took third base uncontested. No runs in the Yankees 9th yet but the spark of a rally had life. Teixeira was hit with the pitched ball runners at third and first Alex Rodriquez slammed a double one hpper to the left field wall Damon scores and runners at second and third. Posada the Yankees catcher slapped a probable double to left center two runs score and Posada out with the throw coming to second instead of going to home plate.
Yankees with the 3 big second out runs scored in their half of the 9th score reading Yankees 7 Phillies 4 and the Phillies went down without a whimper in their last half of the 9th.
Game five November 2, World Series 2009 Yankees-Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia
Game five: Philadelphia Phillies 8 New York Yankees 6
Cliff Lee pitching phenomally during this 2009 World Series throttled the Yankees one more time. A.J. Burnett doing the chores for the Yankees did yeoman like work but the three run homer to Chase Utley in the Phillies half of the 1st inning was the death knell making the Yankees play catch up the rest of the game.
Storyline about any way you slice it for the Phillies is masterful pitching by Cliff Lee and heavy lumber blasts by Chase Utley.
Chase Utley added to his 1st inning three run blast with another solo shot in the Phillies 7th inning. Utley now with five round trip blasts during this World Series Yankees-Phillies 2009 has tied Reggie Jackson ("Mr. October") with a total of five home runs in a World Series.
Yankees went down valiantly fighting till the last out before letting the Phillies rule for game five of World Series 2009 Yankees-Phillies.

WINNING JUBILATION--THIS IS WHAT BEING A WINNER IS ALL ABOUT
Grown Men become Little Boys with all their jubilation in winning as a team and individuals when the work day is over. I witnessed the Yankee Players and Manager feeling the pride and joyful expression of winning, just as they experienced as youngsters growing up. On the other hand the losing team and its players were so disappointed they would throw down their cap or glove to the ground since they couldn't prance around Sally Sue strutting their stuff. I even noticed how the Philly manager graciously praised the Yanks and took the loss in stride even though the agony of defeat brought a noticeable mist to his eyes. But, when it's all said and done only in the world of sports (baseball) can a grown man revert back to childish actions after nine inning of play where they rally together as winners or walk away in dismay and disappointment as losers since the 9th inning is the time for the curtain call. Yes, in Major League Baseball Grown Men can be transformed into a Little Boy in the time it takes to make that final 3 outs or the home team keeping the runners crossing home plate till the winnings done.
