A-Rod propels Yanks to playoff berth

I cannot believe I couldn’t stay up last night to watch the Yankees take down the Angels in the ninth inning. They had actually clinched a playoff berth before winning the game, however, as the Rangers lost during the Yankee game.

Alex Rodriguez was the star of the game, cranking a two-run homer to center in the third, making a diving stop in the sixth to block a run from scoring, and hitting a sacrifice fly in the ninth to break the tie game.

In six games against the Halos this season, A-Rod has five homers, nine RBIs and a 1.451 OPS. Not bad, eh?

Remember, the Yanks play at 3:35 p.m. today.
