Yankees win, Cardinals stun Nationals

A-ROD ABSENT:While the Yankees were celebrating, there also would have been concern at the form of Alex Rodriguez, benched in a playoff game for the first time

AP, NEW YORK

McLouth struck out and J.J. Hardy hit a slow three-hopper to shortstop that Derek Jeter charged and gloved elegantly before throwing to first just in time. Sabathia pitched a 1-2-3 ninth.

While there were celebrations in the Yankees clubhouse, there also would have been concern at the form of Rodriguez, who was benched in a playoff game for the first time in his career, having been hitless in 12 at-bats against right-handed pitchers with nine strikeouts.
