Top of the 9th, two outs and Johnny Damon comes to bat. Lidge ends up sitting at 3-2 and Damon tips one that Catcher Carlos Ruiz drops which should have been the final out for the Yankees. Is this the fateful situation that changes the fates for the Yankees? Will these events go down in history like Steve Bartman, the bloody sock and Bill Buckner?
To make things worse, Damon ends up stealing Second and Third on the same pitch… note to Phillies pitching staff, cover Third Base when a shift is on.
Burnett steps up to the mound tonight to try and clinch the series for the Yankees but I think that Game 4 will probably be the topic of discussion for years to come.
