Yankees Even Series 1-1- Head to Philly

In the first two games of the World Series we have had one-sided dominant pitching. In Game 1, Cliff Lee hurled a 1 run complete game with 10 strikeouts to dominate C.C. Sabathia and the Yankees in a 6-1 win. A.J. Burnett in Game 2 threw for 1 run in 7 innings to beat Pedro Martinez (a former Sox) and the Phillies 3-1. This has been a very interesting World Series, what with its being tied at 1, but they are going into Philadelphia, and the Yanks have not been nearly as dominant on the road. In the first game, Chase Utley homered twice against Sabathia and got the party started for a rally in the 8th. In the second game, trailing 0-1, Mark Teixiera jacked to tie it at 1, how it remained for some time before Hideki Matsui's go-ahead homer in the 6th inning to give the Yankees the lead for the first time in the World Series. I hope the Phils can pull through!
