Derek Jeter followed with a single and Johnny Damon beat the lefty-on-lefty matchup slashing a doubled to deep right, scoring both Pettitte and Jeter. From that point on Hamels was gone and the game was all New York. While Philly would put up a run in the bottom of the sixth and the bottom of the ninth, their offensive could scarcely match the Yankees' immense and unceasing output.
Swisher and Hideki Matsui added a home runs of their own in the sixth and eighth innings respectively and Jorge Posada singled in Johnny Damon in the seventh. The Phillies ran five pitchers out to the mound, but none until Ryan Madson in the ninth could stop the Yankees from scoring.
With a 2-1 lead and CC Sabathia facing the far inferior Joe Blanton in Game 4, the Yankees look to be back in the driver's seat of the 2009 World Series as the memory Cliff Lee's dominating performance fades into the past and, oddly enough because of his pitch count, has begun to take on a underlying result of detriment to the overall success of the team.
