Game 5 of the World Series


In Game 5, the deciding game, Bernie Williams broke his hitting drought in the second inning by hitting a long homer to left field, giving the Yankees the lead. The Mets managed to come back and score two runs in the bottom half of the inning though, as the Yankees where charged with quite a few careless errors. It stayed that way until the 6th inning when Derek Jeter came through once again and crushed the ball into the back of the visitors bullpen, to tie the game for the Yankees. In the ninth, Posada drew a walk, Brosius got a single. Sojo then singled to allow Posada to score, the game was 3-2. Sojo went to third and Brosius scored on Jay Payton's throwing error. The Yankees won the game, 4-2 and the Series 4-1.
