Complete game by Cliff Lee clinches ALDS for Rangers

Cliff Lee just tossed a complete game, allowing one run on six hits and striking out 11, as the Rangers beat Tampa Bay 5-1 to win Game 5 of the ALDS and advance to the ALCS for the first time in club history.

The Rays went quickly in the ninth, as Evan Longoria struck out, Carlos Pena grounded out and B.J. Upton popped into the glove of Elvis Andrus to end it.

The Rangers will face the Yankees in the best-of-7 ALCS beginning Friday night at Rangers Ballpark.

amen there is a God! must re-sign Lee after season at any cost! he legitimizes this once also-ran franchise.

Love it! Now put Julio back in center field (faster in the outfield, good at the bunt, bases stolen, fast runner); keep Francoeur in right, Murphy in left and Cruz as DH. We need fielders and hitters who are at their best, not who "might do ok."
