NLCS 2010: Philadelphia Phillies Need the Other Roy To Win Game 2

So the Phils lost game one with their ace on the mound. This should not be as surprising as you may think, given that the Giants had an ace of their own in Tim Lincecum on the mound.

But the Phillies simply have to win one at home or they are done.

Recognizing that, the Phils turn to their "other" Roy, Mr. Roy Oswalt, in an effort to salvage one game at home before heading to San Francisco for three games.

2010 ALCS Game 3: Time For Yankees Fans To Step It Up In The Bronx

The 2010 ALCS is tied at one game apiece.

The New York Yankees couldn’t muster together another comeback win last night and the Texas Rangers won 7-2.

Phil Hughes followed in CC Sabathia’s footsteps with another not-so-great performance from a Yankees starter. They’re human, just like the rest of us, and nobody is perfect.

The postseason isn’t built for chances or mistakes.

ALCS Game 2: Texas Rangers Hold On, Even Series With New York Yankees

Neftali Feliz just couldn’t wait. The rookie closer for the Texas Rangers propped open the bullpen door just a crack, peering onto the field to watch the action in the bottom of the eighth.

The Rangers' bullpen struggled in Game 1, surrendering a five-run lead to the mighty Yankee offense. Feliz was ever so anxious to redeem the unit. Redemption was the theme of Game 2 against New York. And the Rangers, seeking their first-ever postseason win at home, were in prime position to get it.

ALCS Game 1: Rangers Reversal of Fortune

 By the end of the six innings, the New York Yankees were down 5-0 to the Texas Rangers.

 

Yankees ace CC Sabathia had to exit after the fourth; his shortest outing of the season.

New York Yankees Come Back Against Texas Rangers, Bullpen in ALCS Game 1

ALCS Game 1: Yankees Rally Late To Win

The Yankees lead the majors in come-from-behind wins this season, so it is natural that they rely on them in the postseason as well. In the ALDS they came from behind twice to beat the Twins, and last night they came back from a 5-0 deficit to beat the Rangers 6-5 while taking Game 1 of the ALCS.

Here are some highlights:

ALCS Game 1: New York Yankees Storm Back, Clobber Texas Rangers Bullpen

As the top of the eighth inning began, I was brainstorming for this article. I even wrote a title, and was looking forward to chronicling C.J. Wilson’s magnificent start for the Texas Rangers and harping on how woeful CC Sabathia was for the New York Yankees.

Considering they held a 5-1 lead, I assumed Texas was on their way to their first playoff win at home. Assuming is a dangerous thing. And, too much confidence fueled bad case of Karma. My foolish presumption began to backfire.

New York Yankees: Business as Usual in Game 1 Comeback Win Over Texas Rangers

Things didn't exactly begin as planned for the New York Yankees against the Rangers on Friday night in Texas, but a slow start meant little in a 6-5 comeback victory that secured them a 1-0 ALCS series lead.
