Matsui's monster Series wins him MVP award

Thursday, November 5, 2009 - 12:17am

Hideki Matsui has the most curious habit at the plate. He never takes a practice swing once he steps into the batter's box.

He saves all those meaty cuts for when he needs them.

Matsui did all sorts of damage Wednesday night, setting a record with six RBIs in a World Series clincher and leading the New York Yankees over the Philadelphia Phillies 7-3 Wednesday night.

His performance won Game 6 - and clinched the MVP trophy.
