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.
