The Texas Rangers took a surprising 5-0 lead against New York Yankees ace C.C. Sabathia but they couldn’t hold it for long.

Alex Rodriguez scored the go-ahead run after his two-run single was almost a double-play ground ball, in the eighth inning, rallying the New York Yankees to a 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers in Game 1 of the American League Championship series on Friday night.

New York has won 10 straight postseason games against Texas, who got knocked out of the playoffs by the Yankees in their only three previous playoff appearances (1996, 1998 and 1999). Texas is 0-7 in home playoff games, with five of those losses to the Yankees.

Cincinnati’s top four hitters in the lineup, Phillips, Orlando Cabrera, Votto and Rolen, finished the game at 15-for-22 with eight runs and seven RBI’s as they matched a season-high with 19 hits.


Josh Tomlin, another young pitcher in the Indians farm system that is good, didn’t act like he was afraid to face the New York Yankees hard-hitting lineup led by Alex Rodriguez.

Tomlin was pitching a shutout into the eighth inning and won his major league debut with Cleveland, 4-1 Tuesday night.

Alex Rodriguez went o for 4 on his 35th birthday. That coveted 600th homer can wait another day.
