PHILADELPHIA - With Philadelphia just a New Jersey Turnpike's drive away from New York, many Yankees fans made the trek to the city of brotherly love for Game 5 of the World Series Monday.

The Yankees currently lead the series 3-1, and are sending out starting pitcher A.J. Burnett to face the Phillies' ace, Cliff Lee.

Lee stumped the Yanks' lineup in Game 1 of the series, though the Yankees offense has come alive in the last two games.

If the Yankees win Monday, it will be the club's first World Series Championship since the 2000 series against the Mets.
