The Yankees used a five-run eighth to post a come-from-behind 6-5 win over the host Rangers Friday night in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.

Texas built a 5-0 lead with a three-run first (all of which came on a three-run blast by Josh Hamilton) and two more runs in the fourth. That was more than enough early for Rangers' starter C.J. Wilson, who took a 5-1 lead into the eighth. But Wilson and a collection of Texas relievers gave it all back in the eighth when the Yankees sent 10 men to the plate and took the lead for good. Robinson Cano had three hits and two RBI for New York, which also got two RBI from Alex Rodriguez and two hits each from Derek Jeter and Marques Thames.
