Yankees Stars Lead New York to Victory

The New York Yankees have a huge budget that is able to pay a tea loaded with stars. In Game 2 against the Minnesota Twins, two of the biggest stars earned their contracts.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, the Twins had a 3-1 lead and set Joe Nathan to the mound — who is one of the best closers in baseball. To begin the inning, Mark Teixeira hit a single. The next batter was Alex Rodriguez, a player with a lackluster history in clutch situations. But that wasn’t the case on Friday night. Rodriguez hit a two-run blast to tie the game.

After surviving a no-out, bases loaded jam in the top of the 11th inning, Teixeira came to the plate in the bottom of the 11th with the score still tied 3-3. The Yankees star first baseman then hit a walk-off homer to push the Yankees to a 2-0 lead over the Twins in the series.

The Yankees will try to end the series on Sunday when Andy Pettitte takes on Carl Pavano.
