10/30 in Yankee History

 

2001: Roger Clemens and Mariano Rivera  hurl the Yankees to a 2-1 victory in Game 3 of the World Series. Jorge Posada homers for New York while Scott Brosius’  6th-inning single drives home the winning run. President George W. Bush throws out the ceremonial first pitch, and Brian Anderson takes the loss for Arizona.
