A Dodgers-Yankees World Series has not been seen since Tommy Lasorda led the 1981 Dodgers to a six-game victory over the Yankees.
Craig Gentry turned a spot start into a tiebreaking hit and the Texas Rangers avoided a four-game sweep in a matchup of AL division leaders, rallying past the New York Yankees 10-6 Thursday.
