Rangers even series, bullpen recovers

Another epic comeback wasn’t in store for the Yankees tonight, as the Rangers’ bullpen tossed 3-1/3 scoreless innings and held on for a 7-2 win.

Best of All: Robinson Cano’s sixth-inning homer is still flying. OK, it landed in the upper deck about five seconds after he hit it, but it might still be going if there were no seats in the outfield.

Worst of All: The Yankees left 12 men on base and went 1-for-11 with RISP. In other words, they still could’ve won despite Phil Hughes’ rough start.

Hughes allowed seven runs on 10 hits, walked three and struck out three over four innings and 88 pitches. Nothing like the guy we saw in Game 3 at Yankee Stadium in the ALDS.

Coming Up: The series heads to New York tied at 1 with Cliff Lee and Andy Pettitte on deck for Monday night.
