Texas Takes Game One of The American League Championship Series 3-2

The Texas Rangers were able to hold on for a 3-2 win over the Detroit Tigers, and most importantly Justin Verlander to win game one of the ALCS.

After two rain delays that totaled nearly 2 hours, the Texas Rangers came away from game one of the ALCS with the win.  Detroits ace Justin Verlander gave up 5 hits in his 4 innings including a home run to Nelson Cruz who ended his post season slump of just one hit.  Verlander would give up  a total of 3 runs, and that would be all the Rangers would need.

CJ Wilson gave up 6 hits a 2 runs for Texas.  He also struck out 6.  The Texas bullpen would do a great job of holding a very powerful Detroit lineup to one hit for the rest of the game.  Texas now takes a 1-0 series lead against Detroit.  Game 2 will be tonight and the Rangers will send Derek Holland to the mound to take on Detroit’s Max Scherzer.
