The Rangers scored 9 runs in the game breaking 3rd inning. The 9 runs in the inning was a postseason record for the Rangers.
Nelson come out big again as he established postseason series records for home runs (6) and RBIs (13). Cruz had 8 hits in 22 at bats against the Tigers. All of his hits were for extra bases (6 HRs, 2 doubles). He was the clear choice for ALCS MVP.
This is the first time since 2001 that the American League has the same champion in 2 straight years. The Rangers will await for the winner between the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers. The NLCS stands at 3-2 in favor of the Cards
