Boys are back: Yankees beat Angels, return to World Series to face Phillies

Andy Pettitte started, Mariano Rivera finished and the Yankees are going to their first World Series since 2003 after beating the Angels, 5-2, in Game 6 of the ALCS.

Game 1 of the World Series will be on Wednesday night at the Stadium, with the last two Cy Young winners facing each other: CC Sabathia for the Yankees and Cliff Lee for the Phillies.

First comes the bubbly. Keep it right here for all the reaction from the Champagne celebration and plenty more.

UPDATE, 12:51 a.m.: From 30 feet outside the clubhouse, the smell was already overwhelming. This made the Division Series celebration seem like a 4-year-old’s birthday party. You know those fountains outside the Bellagio? It was like that.

“This is what it’s all about, man,” Pettitte said. “We made a commitment at the beginning of spring training about the team, and putting everybody else’s selfish things aside and just focus on the team, and we knew this would happen.”

Alex Rodriguez: “It’s been a long time coming, that’s for sure. It just feels good to contribute and play well and help the team win.”
