Mizzou in the Majors: Ian vs. the Yankees

Ian Kinsler hasn't yet homered in the ALCS, like he did in the ALDS, but in Saturday's 7-2 Rangers' win over the Yankees, he combined power with speed.

Rangers prevail in Game 2 (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)
While Hughes started the fifth inning for New York, he didn’t record an out. The Rangers chased him from the game after Cruz led off with a double and Ian Kinsler followed with a triple. Joba Chamberlain replaced Hughes and allowed Kinsler to score on a single from Moreland. Texas led 7-1 heading into the sixth inning.
And in case you're wondering, Kinsler never faced Chamberlain during their college years. Kinsler's last season with the Tigers before being drafted was 2003, while Joba Chamberlain's career with the Nebraska Cornhuskers spanned 2004-2006.
