Texas Two-Step: Rangers right back to World Series with 2nd AL title, 15-5 win over Tigers

What can you say. A 9 run 3rd inning is hard to overcome.

And add in Nelson Cruz's home runs, it was one of the greatest performances in a CLS ever.

Stephen Hawkins of the Star Tribune takes a look Texas Two-Step: Rangers right back to World Series with 2nd AL title, 15-5 win over Tigers

Here is an excerpt: "Cruz was selected ALCS MVP after his postseason-record sixth home run of the series, and he also had a record 13 RBIs. Young hit a pair of two-run doubles in a nine-run third inning that sent the Rangers on their way to becoming the AL's first consecutive pennant winner since the New York Yankees won four in a row from 1998-01.

"We wanted to get to the World Series. But the bottom line is getting to the World Series and winning it. We feel pretty confident about ourselves," manager Ron Washington said. "More than anything else, the commitment they made in November after San Francisco sent us home, they held true to it."
