Rangers Win 2nd Straight AL Pennant
by

The Texas Rangers have just captured their second consecutive American League pennant with a 15-5 win over the Detroit Tigers in Game 6 of the ALCS.

Although Yogi Berra says “it ain’t over ’til it’s over” this game was over in the third inning when the Rangers scored nine runs.

Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz was named ALCS MVP hitting six homeruns and driving in 13 runs. And he did it from the seventh spot in the batting order.

In the meantime, the Rangers await the winner of the NLCS. The St. Louis Cardinals currently have a 3-2 lead over the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLCS. The Cardinals could clinch tomorrow night but a Brewers win would force a Game 7 which would be played on Monday night.

The Rangers become the first AL team to win back to back pennants since the New York Yankees did it four straight seasons between 1998 and 2001.

The World Series commences Wednesday night in either Milwaukee or St. Louis.
