The Yankees took control of the ALDS with a 5-2 win over the Twins Thursday. Andy Pettitte pitched like he did in the first half of the season and Mariano Rivera set the Twins down for his second save of the series. Lance Berkman had a huge game, homering and adding a RBI-double in the 7th to break up a 2-2 tie. Curtis Granderson added three hits and a RBI.
The win puts the Yankees one victory away from the ALCS. Phil Hughes will take the mound Saturday night as the Yankees try and earn a sweep.
