Yankees hope to join squads

In the first year of the current Division Series format, the Mariners rallied back after dropping the first two games of the series at Yankee Stadium.

The Red Sox won Games 3 and 4 in Boston, including a 23-7 blowout in Game 4.

This series had a number of memorable moments, from Ramon Hernandez’s walk-off squeeze bunt in Game 1 to Eric Byrnes missing home plate in Game 3 and concluding with Johnny Damon’s scary collision with shortstop Damian Jackson in Game 5.

Game 4 featured two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum getting the win in relief, setting up a Game 5 that saw Buster Posey’s grand slam break things open, as the Giants ended up marching to their second title in three seasons.
