ARLINGTON (AP) — Expect to see New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher with his pants pulled up again in Game 6 of the ALCS.

“I felt like I finally just locked in there with the rest of the outfield,” Swisher said Thursday, a day after playing with his pants falling just below his knee like Brett Gardner and Curtis Granderson, rather than all the way down to his ankle as usual.

Asked if it made a difference, Swisher responded with a chuckle.

“I guess so. I definitely have to try it out again,” he said.

Swisher, who had to find a pair of long blue socks to change his look, scored twice and drove in a run in the Yankees’ 7-2 victory in Game 5 that forced the series back to Texas with the Rangers up 3-2.
