Yankees Win Game 2... World Series Tied 1-1
Big game in the Bronx... as the Yankees beat the Fish 6-1. Hideki "Godzilla" Matsui flashed a glimpse of his power after he crushed a deep centerfield 3-run HR in the first inning (on a 3-0 count). Andy Pettitte pitched a gem, on three days rest, almost notching a complete game shutout. And Nick Johnson, dropped to seventh in the lineup, busted out of his slump with three hits and two runs scored. Today is a travel day, and Game 3 resumes on Tuesday night in Miami. Will the Fish solve their starting pitching problem? They hope that 23 year-old Josh Beckett will bail them out, but the Yanks will turn to Mike Mussina (199 career wins) to match the youngster.
