Lee Dominates in Texas Win
Cliff Lee continued his postseason dominance Monday night with another gem as the Rangers shut down the Yankees 8-0. Lee allowed just two hits and a walk with 13 strikeouts over eight shutout innings, as Texas took a 2-1 lead in the American League Championship Series. Josh Hamilton hit a two-run homer in the first inning off of Yankees starter Andy Pettite, and it ended up being all the Rangers would need. Pettite settled down over seven solid innings, but the Yankee bullpen faltered in the ninth inning, allowing six runs to blow the game open and send the Yankee Stadium crowd to the exits. Lee improved to 3-0 this postseason and remained undefeated in his postseason career, dating back to last year with the Phillies. He would get the start again in a potential Game 7. Game Four of the series is tonight in New York, with A.J. Burnett on the mound for the Yankees and Tommy Hunter pitching for the Rangers.
