On the strength of another clutch hit from Alex Rodriguez (and a great at-bat by Johnny Damon), the Yankees stormed back in the ninth and beat the Phillies, 7-4, in Game 4 of the World Series. They’re one win away from their 27th championship. Stay here for all the clubhouse reaction.

UPDATE, 12:12 a.m.: Johnny Damon said the key to his taking third base was seeing “how Pedro (Feliz) caught the throw.” He also said that Alex Rodriguez “is the reason why we’re here.”

“We’re at 10 (wins),” Damon said. “Hopefully we get 11 tomorrow.”

UPDATE, 12:15 a.m.: CC said he thought the warning was “premature” but Joe Girardi said the umpires told him that CC should feel free to pitch inside and that there would not be any automatic ejections if someone got hit. “It didn’t affect me at all,” Sabathia said.

UPDATE, 12:46 a.m.: A-Rod said, “There’s no question, I have never had a bigger hit.”
