That's twice that Nick Swisher has been hit by a pitch in this series and it completely baffled the umpires. Last time, in Game 4, it definitely benefited the Rangers. It allowed Darren Oliver to avoid the possibility of a big inning. This time, it temporarily benefited the Yankees. Alex Rodriguez came home on what should have been a dead ball. But they did retire Swisher soon after that and avoided another Yankees base runner. Maybe it wasn't such a good break for the Yankees, really.
