Texas Rangers vs. New York Yankees Game 6 Tonight at 7pm

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Excitement levels are high as the Texas Rangers hit the diamond for game 6 of the American League Championship Series. They remain one game away from the World Series.

After they lost game 5 to the Yankees, they returned to Arlington to try and win for the home crowd.

Fans were out at local sports bars early to get their seats, hoping to see the Rangers go to their first ever World Series. They are one of only three teams left in the Majors who haven't been to the Fall Classic.

The Rangers will send Colby Lewis to the rubber to face off against the Yankees' Phil Hughs.

The good news for Rangers fans is the last time these two pitchers faced off, the Rangers crushed Phil Hughs on the way to a 7-2 victory in game 2. Fans are hoping for a similar result.

Restaurant and bar owners across town expect the scene to be much like it was Wednesday night, packed for business and hopefully a good ball game.

A couple of interesting notes about the game: Rangers right fielder Nelsen Cruz will play tonight after nursing a sore hamstring, and Yankees Manager Joe Giradi says Yankee starter C.C. Sabathia will be available out of the bullpen.

We will have more on the Rangers versus Yankees game tonight on KCBD NewsChannel 11 at 10.
