For the first time since the Philadelphia Athletics's Mule Haas hit a game-tying two-run home run in Game Five of the 1929 World Series, a team comes from behind to tie a Fall Classic game in the ninth inning and goes on to win in extra innings. A two-out, two-run home run by Tino Martinez in the bottom of the ninth ties the game, and Derek Jeter hit a home run in the bottom of the 10th, giving the Yankees a 3 - 2 victory over Arizona and knots the World Series at two games apiece. Both homers come off Byung-Hyun Kim, who relieves Curt Schilling in the eighth inning. Mariano Rivera gets the win in relief for the Yankees. Video of World Series
