Yankees Rally Late, Win Game 1 of ALCS

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 one of the ALCS.

Here are some highlights:

That was a huge win. The Yankees needed to take the first game and they showed a lot winning despite Sabathia’s poor performance. That’s how you win pennants.

    Great, huge comeback win Rob. In retrospect, the Jorge-to-C.C. tag out at home loomed large. Big-time kudos to Joba and Moseley for holding the line. What a job by the Yankees to grind it out in the eighth, to do the right things at the plate and not swing for the fences, but work walks and solid base hits.

    Now get Game 2 and really pressure the Rangers.

    I'm happy for Moseley. He battled just to get on the roster, and it's great to see him come up big.

    Another key was Kinsler getting picked off by Kerry. Kerry wasn't throwing strikes, and the Rangers were grabbing momentum. Great job by Kerry because he got that out and then found the strike zone after that.

    No question, Matt. Wood sure settled down after that. Kinsler looked to be going on first move–and that first move from Wood was to first. Huge play after Wood struggled to throw strikes.
