Reversed homer call helps Yanks beat Phils
Guess who showed up for Halloween dressed as sluggers?
The New York Yankees and Alex Rodriguez, whose double clanked off a television camera in the right-field corner and was ruled a home run in the first instant replay call in World Series history.
It changed the game.
"I think it woke our offense up a little bit," Rodriguez said after the Yankees rallied for a rain-delayed 8-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night that gave them a 2-1 Series lead.
Rodriguez and the rest of those dangerous New York bats finally broke loose to back another postseason win by Andy Pettitte.
Game 4 is Sunday night. Joe Blanton pitches against Yankees ace CC Sabathia, who goes on three days' rest for the second time this postseason.
