ALCS Game 5 – Yanks 7, Rangers 2

In retrospect, predictable.  Ace pitcher and experienced, proud, veteran team — defending World Champs — refusing to go down easily and let the upstarts take them out in their house.

CC didn’t have much; he allowed 11 hits in six innings, but he battled them with 7 Ks and held them to 1-9 with RISP.  Cano and Granderson continue to be seemingly the only Yanks hitting well, although Posada, Berkman and Swisher also contributed today.  Two strong innings in relief from Wood, Mo for the save and back to Texas we go.

I still don’t like our chances Friday night.  The place will be nuts as the Rangers try to win their first-ever pennant, and make no mistake, this is a good team playing very well right now.  (Texas, Seattle and Washington are the only franchises never to have been in the World Series, unless you count the NL version of the Brewers who made it as an AL team back in 1982.)

But you never know.   The fat lady may be clearing her throat…but she ain’t singing  just yet.
