After beating the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1, it's the Texas Rangers who will be the Yankees ALCS opponents. Cliff Lee--who the Yankees won't have to see until at least game 3--threw another complete game, striking out 11 and allowing just a run on 6 hits. Ian Kinsler was the offensive star of the game, going 3-for-4 with a three runs driven in, and a big two-run homer in the 9th to basically put the game away.
CC Sabathia will be facing C.J. Wilson in game one on Friday.
