Rangers even ALCS with 7-2 victory over Yankees

ARLINGTON, Texas — David Murphy homered and had an RBI double and the Texas Rangers won a postseason game at home for the first time in their 50-season history, getting even in the AL championship series with a 7-2 victory over the New York Yankees in Game 2 Saturday.

The Rangers again built an early 5-0 lead but held on this time — unlike the series opener when the Yankees made their biggest postseason comeback ever. Texas snapped a 10-game postseason losing streak against New York.

Now the series switches to Yankee Stadium for Game 3 on Monday night, when the Rangers will have hired ace left-hander Cliff Lee on the mound.

Colby Lewis limited New York to two runs over 5 2/3 innings and the bullpen rebounded from the eighth-inning meltdown in Game 1.
