Game 3 is UGLY for Phils
You know your starting pitcher is having a lousy night when he gives up an RBI single to a pitcher from the American League, one who can probably count the number of at-bats he’s had all season on one hand.
Yup, Cole Hamels didn’t have it yet again last night. After starting off well, he got torched for five runs in the fourth and fifth innings as the Yankees regained home field advantage in the World Series with a rain-marred 8-5 win in Game 3 last night at Citizens Bank Park.
Included in that aforementioned carnage were home runs by Alex Rodriguez and Hideki Matsui, Pettitte’s RBI single and clutch hits by Jorge Posada. Pettitte threw 51 pitches in the first two innings, giving up three runs. But he was great over his final four innings to get the win.
