Yankees Vs. Rangers, ALCS Game 6: Colby Lewis Provides Shutdown Inning

Nine outs. Nine outs are now all that separate the Rangers from their first-ever trip to the World Series, after Colby Lewis worked through the Yankees 1-2-3 in the top of the sixth.

Lewis had been sitting for quite a while during the bottom of the fifth inning, while the Rangers were busy giving him four runs of support. It's hard to feel cold while you're witnessing the biggest hits in franchise history, though, and Lewis came right out in the sixth and got the job done. Brett Gardner started off with a weak grounder to second. Up next, Derek Jeter swung at a first-pitch slider in off the plate and grounded harmlessly to third. And to close it out, Curtis Granderson popped out to second - his first out of the game, in three trips to the plate.

It's 5-1 Rangers heading to the bottom of the sixth, and everybody is sensing it now.
