dl rangersrays3 Rangers Come Home To Hero's Welcome The Rangers are on the verge of a sweep after taking the first two games of their American League Divisional Series.  Last night, hundreds of fans met the team at DFW Airport as the Rangers returned from Tampa-Saint Petersburg where they beat the Rays in the first two games of the ALDS.

Yesterday’s six-nothing shut-out was keyed by infielders Michael Young and Ian Kinsler who each homered, with Young’s three-run, fifth-inning shot putting the game out of reach.

Southpaw C.J. Wilson shut the Rays down on two hits through six-and-a-third innings before handing it over to the bullpen to slam the door.  Forty-year-old Darren Oliver, the only holdover from the Rangers’ 1996 playoff team, closed it out with two-and-a-third hitless innings.

The ALDS now comes to Arlington where the Rangers host Game 3 on Saturday afternoon at 4:07.  A Rangers win in any of the three remaining games will advance them to the American League Championship Series to face the winner of the Twins-Yankees series.

Coverage begins on 1080 KRLD at 2:00 p.m. live from the Ballpark in Arlington.
