The Rangers beat the Yankees 7-2 in Game 2 of the ALCS to tie the series
It was Texas' first postseason win at home in its 50-season history
The Rangers snapped a 10-game playoff losing streak to the Yankees

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Rangers relievers got quick redemption, and Texas finally has won a postseason game at home for the first time in its 50-season history.

Elvis Andrus got the Rangers off to a running start, David Murphy led a parade of extra-base hits and the bullpen that faltered the night before held strong this time as Texas got even in the AL championship series with a 7-2 victory over the New York Yankees in Game 2 on Saturday.

The Rangers again built an early 5-0 lead -- and stayed ahead this time, unlike the series opener when the Yankees had their biggest postseason comeback in the seventh inning or later. Texas snapped a 10-game postseason losing streak against New York.

The best-of-seven series now switches to Yankee Stadium for Game 3 on Monday night, when Texas will have hired ace left-hander Cliff Lee on the mound. Lee has won his last four starts in New York, including a complete game for Philadelphia in last year's World Series.
