Yankees-Twins: Game 2 ALDS

Lance Berkman

With the score even 2-2 in the top of the seventh inning, Twins pitcher Carl Pavano unleashed a cut fastball that seemed to catch the inside corner of the plate to strike out Lance Berkman. Home-plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt didn't think so, however, ruling the pitch a ball to keep Berkman's at-bat alive. That would prove costly for the Twins, as Berkman drove Pavano's next pitch into the left-center field gap, plating Jorge Posada to give New York a 3-2 lead. The Yankees never would relinquish the advantage, going on to win 5-2.
