Divison Series 2010 | Day 2




One More....One More....and Only One | Questionable Calls


The Rangers and the Yankees just need one more game to win a division series and the Giants only needed one run behind a Lincecum shut out.


The Rangers beat the Rays 6-0 with some solid pitching from CJ Wilson and get run support from a three-run homer by Michael Young and Ian Kinsler's homer. CJ Wilson went 6 1/3, allowing only two hits and two walks while striking out seven. A questionable check swing call in the fifth inning during Michael Young's at-bat - which he would then go yard for a three run homer.

The Yankees win last night over the Twins 5-0 behind a tie breaker double and a homer by Lance Berkman. Petite...well - he was just 'Playoff' Petite going seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits with a walk and four strikeouts. In the Lance Berkman at-bat that he hit the tie breaker double, there was a questionable call on a 1-2 pitch on the inside corner, which allowed Berkman to continue his at-bat and hit a double scoring Jorge Posada.

The Giants win a tight one over the Braves 1-0 where pitching and defense were the highlight and focus. Tim Lincecum and Derek Lowe pitched outstanding and the only thing to separate the two was the Brave's defense as they committed two errors. Lincecum pitched a complete game allowing only two hits and set a franchise post season record with 14 strikeouts. Licencum's battery mate, Buster Pose, scored the only run from second base on a base hit by Cody Ross. Posey ended up on second base after being called safe on what appeared to be a 'striking 'um out - throw 'um out' double play.
