The Arizona Diamondbacks took a 2-0 lead in games on the defending champion New York Yankees after a 4-0 victory in the World Series last night in Phoenix.

New York is a $2.30 favorite for Game 3 slated for Tuesday night. Five-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens will take the mound as a $2.30 favorite to cut Arizona's lead in half.

The Diamondbacks will counter with left-hander Brian Anderson in the first of three straight games at Yankee Stadium.

Arizona is now listed as a $1.50 favorite to capture its first world championship after taking the opening game Saturday night behind Curt Schilling, 9-1.
