Andy Pettitte pitched and hit as the Yankees beat the Phillies to take a two-games-to-one lead in the World Series. Chad Jennings has all the details on a rainy night at Citizens Bank Park.

The Yankees bats finally delivered the kind of performance everyone had been waiting for, I wrote in my column. After two games dominated by pitching, this win belonged to the offense.

Joe Girardi named CC Sabathia as his Game 4 starter and it’s possible that A.J. Burnett (and Pettitte) will follow Sabathia’s lead and make starts on short rest. Girardi doesn’t seem concerned; after all, there will be plenty of time to take it easy in about a week.

Nick Swisher busted out of a postseason slump with two hits in Game 3 including a home run. The notebook also has items on Hideki Matsui (he homered as well), Chad Gaudin’s availability and Yankee Stadium being opened up for fans to come watch Game 4 on the big screen tonight.
