Josh Hamilton just misses killer blow

NEW YORK -- Josh Hamilton nearly doubled the Texas Rangers' lead with a high, deep fly to right field that sounded and looked like it was heading way out of Yankee Stadium. Instead it was a long out to Nick Swisher.

Pitcher Andy Pettitte then struck out Vladimir Guerrero for a second time to end the Rangers' sixth inning.

Pettitte gave up a first-inning blast to Hamilton and it's stood up for a 2-0 lead.
