Matt Treanor puts Rangers on the board
NEW YORK -- Who needs Yankee killer Bengie Molina when you've got Matt Treanor?
A Rangers catcher homered for the second consecutive game, but the situations are slightly different.
Molina's three-run shot in the sixth inning gave the Rangers the lead for good in Game 4. Treanor led off the fifth inning of Game 5 with a solo shot to put the Rangers on the board, trimming the Yankees' lead to 5-1.
Treanor pulled a 1-0 fastball from CC Sabathia down the left-field line, accounting for his first RBI of the postseason.
