Yankees refuse to die, tie series
NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter became baseball's first Mr. November, hitting a home run with two outs in the bottom of 10th inning to lift the New York Yankees over Arizona 4-3 Wednesday night and tie the World Series at two games each.
Tino Martinez saved the Yankees with a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth off Byung-Hyun Kim, then Jeter connected off the Diamondbacks' closer.
The winning shot came at 12:04 a.m. EST, shortly after the Yankee Stadium scoreboard flashed: "Welcome to November Baseball."
Curt Schilling, pitching on three days' rest, did everything Arizona could have asked. But when Kim relieved, the game turned spooky for the Diamondbacks on Halloween night.
Now, the Yankees will send Mike Mussina against Miguel Batista in Game 5 Thursday night.
Mariano Rivera broke three bats in a perfect 10th inning for the win.
A crowd that had been crazy all night turned quiet in the ninth inning with the defending three-time champions in trouble.
Kim, who struck out the side in the eighth, gave up a one-out single to Paul O'Neill before striking out Bernie Williams.
But Martinez, who had been hitless in nine Series at-bats, launched a drive over the center field fence to tie it. The sellout crowd of 55,863 roared, and several Yankees jumped over the railing in front of the dugout to celebrate.
Kim set down the first two batters in the 10th. But Jeter, who had been only 1-for-15 in the Series, rose to the occasion -- as he had so many times in past Octobers.
Jeter fouled three two-strike pitches and then sent an opposite-field drive into the seats in right.
