It’s winner-takes-all tonight in Saint Petersburg, Florida, where the Rangers take on the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 5 of the American League Divisional Series. Splitting the first four games, the teams now play one final game to determine who will host the Yankees in the American League Championship Series.
Tonight’s contest at the Rays’ Tropicana Field is a re-match of the Game 1 starters as the Rangers send their ace Cliff Lee up against the Rays’ 19-game winner David Price. The Rangers acquired Lee in mid-season with big game situations like this in mind.
For his career, counting his win over Tampa Bay in last week’s Game 1, he is now 5-and-0 with an ERA of 1-point-52 in post-season play.
You can listen to the game on KRLD-FM / 105.3 The Fan. Pregame broadcast begins at 6:30pm, first pitch at 7:07pm
