The Rangers scored five in the sixth inning on a three-run home run by Ian Kinsler, and a two-run double by Sammy Sosa. Sosa had an RBI single in the eighth, and Michael Young tied it with a run-scoring double in the ninth, but Texas couldn't get a run in extra innings as the Tribe went on to win.
Working with a 6-0 lead, C.C. Sabathia gave up five runs on six straight hits in the sixth inning. The Indians led, 7-6, going into the ninth, but the Rangers mounted a rally to send it to extras. Cleveland finally won it when Victor Martinez scored on Jhonny Peralta's game-winning hit in the 11th inning.
