Rangers return to World Series

ARLINGTON, Texas  — The Texas Rangers are back in the World Series with a boom and a purpose.

Manager Ron Washington says it was a group commitment to get back after losing in five games to San Francisco last year.

The Rangers waited a half-century to finally play in their first World Series. They quickly get another chance to win it with another American League pennant.

Nelson Cruz hit six homers in the AL championship series against Detroit, and the Rangers won the Game 6 clincher 15-5 after a nine-run outburst in the third inning.

The World Series opens Wednesday night at St. Louis or Milwaukee. Game 3 deep into the heart of Texas is Saturday night.


The Rangers were off Sunday, and will work out at home Monday afternoon.
