Yankees' Nos. 2-5 hitters do damage in ALCS
tickets for any Major League Baseball game
The Yankees' Nos. 2-5 hitters have 53 of the team's 76 total bases in the American League Championship Series. Hideki Matsui leads the pack with 19 and needs just one more to tie former Yankee Chris Chambliss, who racked up 20 total bases in 1976 for the most in an ALCS. Gary Sheffield's 15 total bases tie him for 21st with 10 other players.

Matsui has driven in 13 runs this postseason. The only player with more RBIs between an ALDS and ALCS is John Valentin, who plated 17 for Boston in 1999. Ivan Rodriguez, the only other player with more, drove in 16 for the Marlins in 2003, tops for a combined NLDS-NLCS total.
