NEW YORK (AP) — Texas has two more chances to reach the World Series for the first time.
First, Colby Lewis gets a chance to win the pennant. If he can't finish the job, Cliff Lee would face the New York Yankees in Game 7.
"There's no frustration or feeling like we didn't accomplish what we wanted to do," Rangers third baseman Michael Young said after Wednesday's 7-2 loss in Game 5. "We'll just go home and try to finish it off."
Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano hit consecutive homers to build an early cushion, and CC Sabathia made the lead stand up as the Yankees closed to 3-2 in the AL championship series.
"We're right where we need to be," Swisher said.
A late-arriving crowd for the late-afternoon game wondered whether this would be it for the defending World Series champs after Texas outscored them 25-5 while winning three straight.
A difficult comeback? Yes.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi addressed his players early Wednesday after Game 4.
"Before we lost the three games in a row, we won four in a row," he told them.
By the time Curtis Granderson hit an eighth-inning homer for his second RBI of the game, belief among the Yankees was starting to grow.
