fan rangersvsrays2 post Lee, Rangers claim Game 1 of ALDS over Rays

The AL West-champion Rangers are back in the postseason for the first time since 1999 and got just their second playoff win in franchise history.

Texas has lost all three playoff series it has contested, but took a big step toward its first victory thanks to Lee, who gave up just one run on five hits and did not walk a batter.

Lee got support from his offense, which plated five runs (four earned) off Tampa Bay ace David Price. Price gave up nine hits in 6 2/3 innings, though did not walk a batter and struck out eight.[photogallerylink id=31702 align=right]

Ben Zobrist’s solo homer in the seventh inning provided the lone run for the Rays, who won the AL East to reach the postseason for the second time in their history.

Game 2 of this best-of-five series is set for Thursday back at Tropicana Field.
