Down By 9, Yanks Rally for Dramatic Classic

It looked weak for the Mudville Nine, actually, the game started off horrible for the Yankees Nine.
Rangers scored twice in the first of starter Shawn Chacon for a little preview and smacked him around for two walks, three huge hits, and a hits batsman to extend the lead to 6-0. Torre replaced him immedialty for Aaron Small who gave up three more runs on a three-run home run to Hank Blalock.
Yankees managed a run in their second frame and slowly chipped away the lead cutting it down to five until all hell broke lose.
Derek Jeter hit a three-run home runs topped off with a Miguel Cairo two-run single to give the Yankees an 11-10 lead.
The scoring was not done yet.
Scott Procter started the seventh only to walk the first batter followed up by a home run to Brad Wilkerson.
Yankees immediatly tied the game with Johnny Damon scoring on Robinson Cano's sacrifice fly.
Mariano Rivera came in to hold the tie only to give up a run on a broken bat single to give the Rangers a 13-12 lead.
With three outs to make history, Johnny Damon reached base followed up by Jeter's ground out. One out later, a base hit would have tied the game, Jorge Posada, probably tired from the monster mash, said no to the tie and hit a two-out, game-winning, walk-off home run to win the wildest game at Yankee Stadium since the Yankees and Athletic's slugged it out a few years ago on Opening Day.
Both teams combined for 33 hits, 11 walks, two hit batsmen, and 27 runs. There is a record somewhere. Derek Jeter alone had seven total bases.
Yankees were down 9-0 after the first, came back to take the lead, lose it, and wn it in dramatic fashion. I wish ESPN had the game on.

Final Score:
Yankees 14, Rangers 13
