The New Yankees have found out that Cliff Lee is tough in the postseason in clutch situations.

On Monday night, he went through their lineup like a buzzsaw cutting down trees, striking out 13 batters in leading the Texas Rangers to an 8-0 win in the best-of-seven American League championship series in Bronx, New York.

Josh Hamilton banged out an early two-run homer off Yankees starter Andy Pettitte and started a six-run explosion in the ninth inning that sent New York fans wondering if they’ve met their match in the postseason.

The left-handed Lee, allowed only two singles in eight innings and became the first pitcher to reach double figures in strikeouts three times in one postseason.

Known as Mr. Automatic, Lee improved to 7-0 with a 1.26 ERA in eight postseason starts. Three of those victories have come against the Yankees, including two in the 2009 World Series for Philadelphia.
