So much for a tight series…


Easy, big fella!

Easy, big fella!

Alright Yankees, time for that playoff choking reflex to kick in…NOW! CC Sabathia pitched a gem on three days’ rest and Alex Rodriguez continued his improbable playoff tear to lead New York to a 10-1 win tonight, grabbing a commanding 3-1 series lead in the process.

A huge clunker for the Angels in this one, especially coming off an emotional come-from-behind win in extras Tuesday. Starter Scott “No Command” Kazmir was his wild self, walking four and giving up four runs in just four innings. Rodriguez and Melky Cabrera had three hits apiece for the Yankees, who tacked on five runs in the last two innings to make it pretty, pretty embarrassing.

Of course, we’ve seen New York blow bigger ALCS leads than 3-1 — if you need a refresher, pop in the terrific romance-comedy “Fever Pitch” and relive the magic of the Yankees’ 2004 collapse, all the while enjoying the acting stylings of screen legends Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore.

Any shot the Angels have at making a comeback starts Thursday, when Allan James Burnett (12-9, 4.04) and John Lackey (11-8, 3.83) square off in Game 5.
