Rangers Vs. Yankees, ALCS Game 5: Matt Treanor Home Run Puts Texas On Board

C.J. Wilson gave the Rangers an important inning in the bottom of the fourth. After allowing a leadoff double and seeing that runner advance to third with one out, Wilson escaped without surrendering that sixth run, striking out Brett Gardner and getting Derek Jeter to ground out.

That brought us to the top of the fifth, with the score still 5-0 Yankees. And immediately, the Rangers went and got themselves on the board. After seeing his team fail to take advantage of opportunities in the first four innings, Matt Treanor led off the fifth by pulling a 1-0 inside fastball from CC Sabathia into the left field seats, just down the line.

The solo home run chips away a bit at the lead, and one remembers that the Rangers have been taking good swings against Sabathia the whole time.
