Texas Rangers becoming dominant AL team; headed to Series 2nd year in a row

(courtesy of

The Texas Rangers had some important people in the stands Saturday night in Arlington that they did not want to disappoint.

Former team owner and U.S. president George W. Bush, Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki and current team owner Nolan Ryan watched as the Rangers clobbered the Detroit Tigers in the American League Championship Series.

They are the first AL team to repeat as champions in a decade.

The explosive offense of the Rangers used a nine-run third inning to power them to a 15-5 romp over Detroit that allowed them to get to the World Series a second straight year. They won the ALCS 4 games to 2.

The franchise that started as the expansion Washington Senators and moved to Texas back in 1972 had failed to advance to the World Series in its first 49 years of existence. The Rangers won the AL title in 2010 but lost to the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.

The Rangers rode the hot bat of its rising star Nelson Cruz. He set a postseason record with his sixth home run of the series.

Cruz collected 13 RBI’s in the series, which is another postseason record, and was voted as the ALCS MVP.

Another star for Texas is the longest tenured player on the roster, Michael Young. Young, who earlier in the season wanted to be traded, has flourished in the DH role. Last night, he hit a home run, and knocked home five runs. Young has played with Texas for 11 years and is 34 years old.
