For the Yankees, they spent Tuesday at Yankee Stadium as they awaited the to see the Texas Rangers win their first post-season series in franchise history behind Cliff Lee. Lee pitched a complete game with 11 strikeouts to defeat the Tampa Bay Rays, for the second time in as many starts in the series.
