David Murphy homered and had an RBI
double and the Texas Rangers won a postseason game at home for the
first time in their 50-season history, getting even in the AL
championship series with a 7-2 victory over the New York Yankees in
Game 2 on Saturday.
The Rangers again built an early 5-0 lead but held on this time
- unlike the series opener when the Yankees made their biggest
postseason comeback ever. Texas snapped a 10-game postseason losing
streak against New York.
Now the series switches to Yankee Stadium for Game 3 on Monday
night, when the Rangers will have hired ace left-hander Cliff Lee
on the mound.
Colby Lewis limited New York to two runs over 5 2-3 innings and
the bullpen rebounded from the eighth-inning meltdown in Game 1.
