ARLINGTON (AP) – Last year, a fan rally followed the Texas Rangers’ first appearance in a World Series.

This time, having lost the Fall Classic for the second straight year, the party is off.

The Rangers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games after coming within one strike of clinching the Series twice in Game 6.

Rangers spokesman John Blake told The Associated Press on Saturday that the team decided before the Series even began that no party should be held if they lost this year.

Blake said that the Rangers’ “expectations were higher, and if we didn’t win, we didn’t think it merited it.”

Last year, several thousand fans showed up for a rally even though the Rangers had lost to the San Francisco Giants in five games.
