Yankees Tie up the Series at 1-1

Last night I was able to witness a great pitching matchup between Burnett and Pedro. Both pitchers needed a great performance and both delivered. AJ was on with his curveball, which he set up his fastball. Pedro was up to his usual stuff with keeping guys off balance and pitching "smart". Though Pedro does not have the velocity anymore, he can still pinpoint his pitches and he was hitting all his spots. Matsui's HR was huge, simply huge. After Teixeira's HR to tie it, the crowd needed a boost, and Matsui supplied it. The Yankees never looked back. Though I do not agree with the the move to have Mo pitch in the 8th and 9th, it did work and the Yankees tied the series up at 1. The series now moves to Philly where Andy will have to once again pitch a game. The Phillies now have the home-field advantage in this now, best of 5 series.
