2011 MLB Postseason: Texas Rangers Win American League, Advance to World Series

Behind an awesome American League Championship Series performance from Nelson Cruz, who clubbed a record six home runs, and an offensive explosion keyed by the lack of depth in the Detroit Tigers' bullpen, the Texas Rangers are headed to the 2011 World Series after knocking off Detroit in six games, culiminating in a 15-5 beatdown on Saturday night. The Rangers torched Tigers starter Max Scherzer early, scoring nine runs in the bottom of the third with Michael Young hitting a pair of two run scoring doubles. Not only did Cruz set a postseason record with six homers in the season but he also drove in a record 13 RBIs in the series.
The Rangers are headed to their second consecutive World Series and will take on the Milwaukee Brewers or the St. Louis Cardinals.
