ARLINGTON (AP) Nelson Cruz is slugging away for the Rangers in October.

Only 3 years ago, Cruz was there to be had by any other team when Texas waived him at the end of spring training to keep another young slugger on its roster.

Nobody else claimed Cruz, who was then sent to the minors but is now living up to his “Boomstick” nickname with another powerful postseason.

The Rangers have a 3-2 lead in the AL championship series that is back in Texas, where Cruz won Game 2 with the first-ever game-ending grand slam in postseason history. Cruz hit another 11th-inning blast in Detroit, and has an LCS-record five homers.

Game 6 is Saturday night. Max Scherzer goes for Detroit against Derek Holland in a pitching rematch of Game 2.
