Game 6 Preview

The Texas Rangers have returned to their own clubhouse, where the only trophies are the two deer heads mounted on the wall courtesy of Josh Hamilton.

If the Rangers are going to keep going where they’ve never been before, they have to win the AL championship series against the New York Yankees at home. The first of their two chances is Game 6 on Friday night.

Texas clinched its first AL West title in 11 years on the road, in Oakland with a week to play in the regular season. Then, with a 2-0 series lead before losing both first-round games at home, the Rangers won the deciding Game 5 of the AL division series and celebrated at Tampa Bay.

They missed their first chance to end the ALCS, when the defending champion Yankees got an early lead and went on to a 7-2 victory Wednesday in Game 5 to force the best-of-seven series back to Texas. The Rangers have a 3-2 lead.

So will the Yankees, who have won 27 World Series titles and 40 pennants, though they haven’t overcome a 3-1 postseason deficit since 1958.

The Yankees won the ALCS opener at Rangers Ballpark, overcoming a late 5-0 deficit for a 6-5 victory last Friday. Texas responded by taking the next three — winning a postseason game at home for the first time before consecutive victories at Yankee Stadium.

Now it’s back to Rangers Ballpark, where about three dozen Lone Star flags whip in the wind high above center field and more than 50,000 fans will gather under Friday night lights that in the Texas fall are usually reserved for high school football.

It is a Game 2 pitching rematch of Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis and Phil Hughes, who gave up 10 hits (seven for extra bases) and seven runs in four innings. Hughes had allowed only three hits in 15 1/3 scoreless innings during his previous three games at Texas. (Source)

The Texas Rangers reached the World Series for the first time, with Vladimir Guerrero driving in three runs and Nelson Cruz homering in a 6-1 win over the New York Yankees on Friday night in Game 6 of the AL championship series.

Guerrero hadn’t driven in a run in the ALCS until an RBI grounder in the first inning of the clincher, the biggest victory in the franchise’s 50 seasons. He added a two-out, two-run double in the fifth to chase Yankees starter Phil Hughes before Cruz followed with his fifth postseason homer.

Colby Lewis allowed three hits and one run in eight innings against the defending World Series champions.

Texas opens the World Series at San Francisco or Philadelphia on Wednesday night. (Source: ESPN)
