MLB Playoffs Day 17: ALCS 6 - Yankees at Rangers, 8 PM

Yankees Elimination Day, take two!

This time back in the Rangers' barn, it's a rematch of the Game 2 matchup of Phil Hughes and Colby Lewis. Here were their lines from G2 (Texas won 7-2):

Hughes: 4 IP, 10 H, 7 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
Lewis: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K


Hughes got shelled, Lewis couldn't go deep into the game, so both bullpens saw significant action.

Since I was completely wrong about guessing last night's NLCS 5 was going to be a pitcher's duel for the ages, tonight I'm guessing the Rangers will score 38 runs and the Yankees will score 2.

Caught stealing!!!

Ish said...

What a throw by Molina.

redsock said...

Molina: "Where you goin' to?"

Ish said...

Rain falling again...

Ish said...

Molina: "I hit for the cycle and you can't even steal second, bitch."

Ish said...

1 run down, 37 to go.

Ish said...

Wooooooooow nice catch Elvis!

Ish said...

This game feels drastically different than Game 5. Yankee fans better be having indigestion right about now.

redsock said...

21 and counting down ...

Ish said...

The ol' swinging scrotum bunt.

Ish said...

Stirring in the bullpen...

Ish said...

PASSEDBALLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

Huey Lewis mowin' 'em down.

Ish said...

That hit Swisher. Fuckers better overturn this call.

Ish said...

Andddd that is now a blown call. Assholes.

Ish said...

VLAD!!!!

Ish said...

DONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Woo hoo

Ish said...

Counting down the outs!

Ish said...

So uh, 9 outs?

Ish said...

SIX!

Ish said...

"There is plenty of baseball to be played here in Arlington." Oh yeah, Rangers aren't done scoring!

redsock said...

Went to eat dinner when it was tied. Nice to see what I missed.

redsock said...

okay, tried like hell to get some free streaming of the game -- and failed. rangers radio will have to do (though listening to sterling for the last outs might be fun).

Ish said...

Wouldn't you just love to see a grand slam off of JtC? That would bring the house down!

redsock said...

yeah, more baserunners! good idea.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Do not squander

Ish said...

SCROTUM LINER!

redsock said...

SCROTE! 6-1!

Ish said...

I was able to find a stream but I think you have to download a plug in. It's here if you want to take a hack at it.

Ish said...

They keep throwing Murphy fastballs on the inner half. I bet he's going to hit one here.

Ish said...

One what? I'm not sure.

Ish said...

By the way...

6 down, 32 to go!

Ish said...

Welp... I was kinda right?

redsock said...

that was my first try, actually. system at work won't let me install or run anything.

Ish said...

I thought about whether to listen to Yankees radio during the bottom of the 9th, but since I have MLB At-Bat on my phone, I'll keep it on the fun, optimistic side and listen to Rangers radio.

redsock said...

DUMBO K!

L-girl said...

Happy YED a few innings early!

Never thought I'd cheer for Texas, but hey.

Ish said...

Meanwhile through all of this Colby Lewis is still in this game. Fuckin awesome!

redsock said...

ANOTHER K!

Ish said...

Yeah, same here. But here they are, second on the World Series totem pole for me.

redsock said...

last time lewis went more than 7.0 IP was june 19.

Ish said...

THREE!!!

redsock said...

KI - CLUTCH!!!

MR. 24!


"and jeter had a FEEBLE hack! he tried to hold up but couldn't!!"

Ish said...

Going to attempt to record the last at-bat. Audio's getting a tad choppy, though. Streaming from MLB At-Bat

Ish said...

Yankee hats being thrown onto the field. Hahaha!!!

Ish said...

Okay, I've got my phone set to record the final out, and I've fired up my terrestrial radio to listen to Yankees radio call the final inning as well.

redsock said...

smoke 'em if you got 'em!

redsock said...

Ex-Ranger Slapppy set to make the final out.

L-girl said...

A new Mr 27!

THANK YOU TEXAS!!!!

redsock said...

YANKEES LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE!

L-girl said...

Happy YED, JoSers :)

Now we can enjoy the WS in peace.

Ish said...

Happy Yankee Elimination Day!!!!

Ish said...

"Striiiike three. Ballgame over! American League Championship Series over... Rangers win!"

John Sterling.

redsock said...

Man, that Sterling is so spontaneous. You never know how he will make the call!
