The game ended just a few hours ago, and when it did the Yankees beat the Angels 4-3 in 13 innings to earn their 17th walkoff win of the season and second of these playoffs. Alex Rodriguez hit the tying homer in the 11th and Jerry Hairston scored the winning run in the 13th on an error.

The Yankees showed a familiar resolve, writes Sam Borden, winning in dramatic fashion to pull ahead 2-0 in the ALCS.

No matter the situation, Mike Scioscia will pitch his four starters and not turn to John Lackey on short rest, Rick Carpiniello writes.

My notebook includes Joe Girardi explaining why it was a tough decision to sit Jorge Posada and start Jose Molina. It also mentions the October struggles of Chone Figgins, why A-Rod — charley horse or not — has become more aggressive on the bases, and more.

Sam and Chad will have more from sunny California later today.
