Yankees Vs. Rangers, ALCS Game 6: Colby Lewis Spins Another Zero

After your offense gives you the lead, it's important for a pitcher to come out and throw a shutdown inning. That's exactly what Colby Lewis was able to do to the Yankees in the second. At least in terms of results.

Protecting a 1-0 advantage, Lewis faced Alex Rodriguez to start the second and allowed a line drive to left. Elvis Andrus, though, was able to time a leap perfectly, and he snared the ball with the top of his glove for an out.

That brought Lance Berkman to the plate, and after falling behind in the count 0-2, Berkman lifted a high, long fly ball to center. Josh Hamilton was able to run it down for the second out.

Nick Swisher was last up, and Swisher also fell behind 0-2. He worked the count to 2-2, but then couldn't catch up with an outside fastball. That strikeout ended the frame, and the Rangers remain in the lead.
