Yankees settle for split in Texas

Leave it to Sam to explain today’s game in eight words: The sequel wasn’t as good as the original. In basically a remake of last night’s game — starter struggles, bullpen holds steady,¬†offense needs to rally — the Yankees couldn’t replicate last night’s heroics and took a 7-2 loss to the Rangers in Game 2 of the ALCS. Robinson Cano had a home run for a second night in a row, but Friday’s five-run eighth inning never happened. Instead, the struggles of Phil Hughes left the Yankees in a hole they couldn’t escape. One week after he pitched so brilliantly in the division series, Hughes allowed seven runs through four innings, his worst Texas outing by a country mile.
