Yankees Back In World Series

So much for the Angels comeback theory.

Too many walks and fielding miscues cost the Halos its chance for a dramatic Game 7.

It seems the Angels lost its momentum from a thrilling win in Game 5 with the postponement of Game 6, but give the Yanks their due, they had to wait to play, too.

New York is now 7-1 all time in the ALCS since the league instituted a best-of-seven format. The only blemish coming in 2004 when the Red Sox rallied from an 0-3 deficit to take the series.

Angels Need Prayer In New York

Don’t think the Angels can come back against the Yankees?

Then let me remind you of the 2003 NLCS, when the Marlins overcame a 3-1 series deficit to knock-off our beloved Cubbies.

The odds, of course, are not in the Angles favor. Only nine of the 28 teams down 3-2 in the LCS have ever come back to win the series.

And of those nine teams, only four were able to turn the trick by winning the final two games on the road: 1985 Royals at Toronto, 1991 Braves at Pittsburgh, 2003 Marlins at Chicago and the 2004 Red Sox at Gotham.
