Written by Jason Singer on . Posted in Posts, Sports

Who’s the New York Yankees’ most clutch player? Derek Jeter? Hideki Matsui? Mariano Rivera? Forget all those high-priced superstars, little-known Andy Phillips is throwing his name in the hat. For the second straight night, Phillips singled home the go-ahead runs as the Yankees defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 6-4. The Yanks have now captured four [&hellip
