October 22, 2010 — The Yankees might have figured out the mystery that is Colby Lewis. They were quieted by Wilson in Game 2 of the ALCS, and the Rangers pitcher only gave up two walks (and no hits) through the first four innings of this game.
Alex Rodriguez’ leadoff double in the fifth was scorched. And even though Lance Berkman didn’t follow with a hit, he had me fooled. When Berkman flied out to the deepest part of the ballpark, it appeared as if the ball was going out.
Before the inning was over, Jorge Posada sliced a double down the right-field line.
Two good things happened in the fifth: the Yankees tied the game at one and they began to turn the tables on Wilson. I’m not sure which will have a bigger impact tonight.
