UPDATE, 10:20 p.m.: Two outs in the sixth, Yanks up 5-1 and we’re into thread No. 3.

UPDATE, 10:30 p.m.: This just got hairy for Sabathia in a hurry. A tough check-swing call on ball four to Hunter followed by a single to right from Guerrero. Suddenly it’s two-on, none out.

UPDATE, 10:35 p.m.: Posada is having a rough night. He started to run off the field after Rivera bounced into a double play, obviously thinking there were three outs. Only a heads-up play by A-Rod to sprint and cover home kept Torii Hunter from trying to sneak down the baseline and pick up a cheap run.

UPDATE, 10:37 p.m.: And CC gets a lineout from Kendrick to end the inning. He’s through six, has a four-run lead and has thrown 80 pitches. The Yankees would love it if he could take it all the way to Mariano.

UPDATE, 10:54 p.m.: Another 1-2-3 for Sabathia in only nine pitches. He’s been outstanding and the Yankees are three outs away from Rivera.

UPDATE, 11:02 p.m.: For a pinch-runner, Gardner sure does get thrown out a lot. That was a great throw by Napoli. Right on the money.

UPDATE, 11:09 p.m.: That’s Damon’s second homer in as many days and ninth career postseason homer. He absolutely murdered it to left field and it’s 7-1 now. Lots of red shirts heading toward the exits.

UPDATE, 11:17 p.m.: That’s 101 pitches and eight innings for Sabathia. You want to talk about an ace showing up? You saw it tonight.

UPDATE, 11:37 p.m.: Chad Gaudin comes in to finish it off and the Yankees are one win away from the World Series.
