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.

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.
