Friday, October 15After that demoralizing loss, I expected Texas to curl up into a little ball of goo and whimper until their official elimination finally came, but they attacked the Phranchise early in Game 2 and romped to a 7-2 win.
Yankees - 000 000 150 - 6 10 1
Rangers - 300 200 000 - 5 7 1
Saturday, October 16With the series tied 1-1 and everyone insisting that Lee in Game 3 = an automatic W, the tabs started to panic.But this is baseball. Nothing is a sure win. Nothing!
Yankees - 000 101 000 - 2 7 0
Rangers - 122 020 00x - 7 12 0
Joel Sherman, Post, before Game 3:
... you know, there is not an actual law that states the Yankees can't beat Lee ...Lee walked calmly out on the Yankee Stadium mound on Monday night and threw eight shutout innings, allowing only two hits and one walk, while striking out 13!
Monday, October 18The Yankees' three baserunners were the fewest they've ever had in a postseason game and the 8-0 loss was the worst post-season shutout in Yankees history. Thousands of loyal fans gave up and went home before it was over.In a must-win Game 4, the Yankees' season rests on the not-so-broad shoulders of A.J. Burnett. ... Rut Roh, Rankees!New York now needs to win three games in a row to avoid facing Mr. Lee in Game 7 in Texas.
Rangers - 200 000 006 - 8 11 0
Yankees - 000 000 000 - 0 2 0
