For the second straight night, the New York Yankees rallied after being down to their final out and took a 3-2 lead in the World Series heading to Game 6 in Arizona on Saturday night.

Las Vegas Sports Consultants has installed the Diamondbacks as $1.55 home favorite for Game 6 with Randy Johnson opposing New York's Andy Pettitte in a battle of quality left-handers.

If a Game 7 is necessary, the pitching matchup is Curt Schilling for Arizona against five-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens. LVSC tentatively opened the Diamondbacks as a $1.30 favorite.
