The New York Yankees defeated the Texas Rangers by a score of 6-5 in a wild Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. CC Sabathia looked awful in only four innings of work and CJ Wilson looked solid for 7+, but Dustin Moseley actually earned the win for the Yankees, going perfect for two innings while striking out four. Mariano Rivera came in to save what is certainly one of the best Yankee postseason victories in recent memory.

On a day where the Yankees had the AL East crown within their grasps, they didn’t take care of business. All the Yankees needed to do today was beat John Lackey and hope for a Rays loss to open the playoffs at home. Instead, Dustin Moseley turned in a dreadful, five inning, four run performance. David Robertson gave up two runs in a 1/3 of an inning while lefty Royce Ring gave up a run.

Offensively for the Yanks, Nick Swisher homered and Robinson Cano went 1 for 4, collecting his 200th hit of the season.

With this loss, the Yankees finish in a very disappoint second place to the Tampa Bay Rays. They will open up Wednesday night in Minnesota against Francisco Liriano.

Liriano really struggled over his last three starts, going 0-3 with a 8.10 ERA. In two starts against the Bombers, he went 0-1 with a 3.26 ERA. In five career appearances against the Yankees, he is 0-2 with a 3.12 ERA.

He will be opposed by Yankee ace, CC Sabathia. Sabathia threw an absolutely dominant performance in his regular season start against the Blue Jays. In 8 1/3 innings, Sabathia gave up one run on three hits. Sabathia did not pitch against the Twins this year, but went 1-0 against them last season.

The Yankees have absolutely owned the Twins the post-season. Since 2003, the Yankees are 4-0 against the Twins in the Divisional Series, including a three-game sweep last year. This will mark the first time that the Twins have home field advantage.

In what was a very forgetful weekend in Arlington, the Yankees were swept in the final game of this three-game set, 4-1. The Yankees only managed two hits off Cliff Lee. Lee, who has been limited by back trouble, completely dominated the Yanks today. The soon-to-be free agent threw eight innings of one-run ball. Dustin Moseley started the game for the Yanks and gave up four earned runs over 6 2/3 innings.

The good news for the Yanks is that the Rays lost and these two AL East powers will square off tomorrow night for a critical three-game set. There’s no need to go into detail about the game. The Yanks just need to show up tomorrow.

After a disappointing three game set against the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees will fly to Texas for three-game against the Rangers. The Yanks and Rangers split a two-game set in Texas a month ago. The highlight of the series was the Yankee rally when they trailed Cliff Lee 6-1 in the seventh inning. This could be a potential playoff series preview, so be sure to tune in and watch. Star outfield Josh Hamilton will not play this weekend and Cliff Lee is questionable with a back injury.

After taking two of three games in Chicago, the Yankees will kick off a ten-game home stand starting tonight against the A’s. The A’s (65-64) are in third place in the AL West as they turn their attention to 2011. The A’s boast a rotation full of promising young talent, headlined by Wednesday’s starter, lefty Brett Anderson. Friend of the blog, Dallas Braden, will get his chance at ‘redemption’ on Thursday afternoon!

Lance Berkman is expected to rejoin the team on Wednesday while Alex Rodriguez is scheduled to come off the DL next Sunday.

After going 5-2 on their recent home stand, the Yankees will hit the road for six road games, starting in Toronto tonight. In an effort to save their bullpen and prolong Phil Hughes’ availability before his inning limit creeps up, the Yankees have recalled pitcher, Ivan Nova from Triple A. Nova will get the start tonight. Let’s hope he can slow those powerful Toronto bats (188 team home runs).
