ALCS Game 4 – Rangers 10, Yanks 3

The “You Know Your Season’s Over” Moment:  Bottom of the fifth, two on, no one out, middle of the order up, Yanks ready to extend their one-run lead.  Tex hits a grounder to third, blows up his hammy on the way to first, A-Rod then hits a DP grounder, Yanks never challenge again.

The “Who Knew At The Time?” Moment:  One out in the sixth, Cruz tags up on a deep fly to center.  With first base now open, Yanks decide (correctly) to walk Murphy intentionally to get to Molina who hits the first pitch for a three-run HR.  Game. Set. Match.

Remember what I said in playoff preview about heroes and legends being made in October?  Exhibit A: Cliff Lee.  Exhibit B: Josh Hamilton.

Rangers lead series 3-1.
