Game 1 of the World Series will be Saturday night at the home of the National League champion. Atlanta leads the New York Mets 3-2 in the NLCS, with Game 6 Tuesday night at Turner Field. It will be the Yankees' third trip to the World Series in four years, and an opportunity for them to win their 25th title. Hernandez, blowing on his hand to keep warm on a chilly night, earned ALCS MVP honors by improving to 4-0 with an 0.97 ERA in five career starts in the postseason. Ramiro Mendoza came in from the bullpen in the eighth and kept the score at 4-1, striking out pinch-hitter Scott Hatteberg on a 3-2 pitch that bounced in the dirt and getting Trot Nixon on a foul pop to end the inning. Jorge Posada hit a game-clinching, two-run homer off Tom Gordon in the ninth. - USA Today
