Texas Rangers are a win away from World Series
Nelly Cruz did it again last night. After Monday's grand slam to win Game 2 in the 11th, Cruz hit a monster home run last night to put the Rangers up by 4 in the 11th inning of Game 4.
After Mike Napoli put Texas ahead by one run, Nelson Cruz belted a 3-run home run to put the game out of reach for the Detroit Tigers. Rangers win 7-3, and head into this afternoon's game with a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.
Are you gonna watch at work?
Today's game starts at 3:19, and offices everywhere in Texas will be turning on TV's to tune in. You can also get the Gameday graphics on the Texas Rangers website to follow along. If you have important business to do today, you'd be wise to get it done early in the day. Unless of course you hate baseball and can't stand the thought of supporting a beloved Texas team that has overcome the odds and gone from underdog to America's favorite. Then by all means, skip the game.
Remember the days we suffered through, when the Rangers just couldn't get it together? Now look. Possibly two years in a row in the World Series?
