The New York Yankees are set to face the Texas Rangers in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series tonight at Rangers Ballpark.

The Rangers will be hungry for revenge after a decisive 7-2 defeat by the Yankees on Tuesday night at the new Yankee Stadium. In a do-or-die situation, the Yankees were able to pull off a win that kept them in contention for the World Series. Now as the series moves to Texas for Game 6 and potentially Game 7, they face an uphill battle.

For Yankees fans seeing a team rise through the ashes is not something new. Many may remember the 2004 ALCS where the Yankees won the first 3 games of the series only to have the Boston Red Sox become the first major league team to rebound from a postseason 3-0 deficit.

Game 6 will see a repeat of Game 2 aces Phil Hughes for the Yankees and Colby Lewis for the Rangers. (more…)

The win brings the Giants one win away from the World Series. Tonight’s Game 5 will see some of the MLB’s finest pitchers battle it out.

Starting pitcher for the Phillies, will be Roy “The Doc” Halladay, (more…)
