The Texas Rangers bounced back from a crushing Game 1 defeat to beat the New York Yankees 7-2 in Game 2 on Saturday. The Rangers' bullpen, after looking like they didn't even belong in the playoffs in Game 1, rebounded nicely to hold the Yankees scoreless over the last 3 1/3 innings; starter Colby Lewis got the win. The victory was the first-ever post-season win at home for the Rangers, and ended a streak of 10 consecutive post-season losses to the Yankees. Texas will have their ace Cliff Lee on the mound for Game 3, and the Yankees will send Andy Petitte, MLB's winningest post-season pitcher in history. The game will be played in New York Monday night at 8:07 PM ET.
