Alex Rodriguez a Hero Again for Yankees

Alex Rodriguez entered the 2009 Major League Baseball playoffs with a rep as being a poor postseason player. In a matter of days, he has altered that rep and has now authored a number of memorable postseason moments. His latest chapter came Saturday night.

With the game tied 2-2 in the top of the 11th inning, the Los Angeles Angels got an RBI single by Chone Figgins to take a one-run lead. The Yankees needed to score in the bottom of the 11th. Rodriguez, who led off the inning, quickly took care of that issue by blasting a solo shot.

In the bottom of the 13th inning, the Yankees won the game when Jerry Hairston, Jr. scored following a throwing error by Maicer Izturis. The victory gives the Yankees a commanding 2-0 lead in the best out of seven ALCS.

The next contest in this exciting series takes place on Monday in California. Andy Pettitte will start for the Yankees, while the Angels will send Jered Weaver to the hill.
