The defending World Series champion New York Yankees live to fight another day.
Facing elimination in their American League Championship Series today, they beat the Texas Rangers 7-2 at Yankee Stadium and now trail in the best-of-seven series three games to two.
The Yankees got home runs from Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson, and their ace CC Sabathia picked up the victory despite allowing 11 hits over six innings.
The series returns to Texas for game 6 on Friday night and game 7, if necessary, on Saturday night. Both games will be televised on TBS.
The Rangers need one more win to get to the first World Series in the team's 38-year history in Texas, and history is on their side.
Only 10 teams have lost a best-of-seven series after winning three of the first four games.
