Out-hit and out-pitched throughout the ALCS, the Yankees season ended tonight with a 6-1 loss in Texas. Back-to-back clutch hits by the Rangers — a two-run double by Vladimir Guerrero and a two-run home run by Nelson Cruz — made the difference. They were the kind of hits the Yankees never seemed to get this series. Phil Hughes nearly pitched a good game, but his last pitch was the Guerrero double, leaving him with two of the four losses this series. The Yankees lineup could do nothing against Rangers starter Colby Lewis, who allowed three hits and struck out seven through eight innings.
