ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Rangers are so close they can taste it now.

Cheered on by a crowd of 51,508, the seventh largest all-time at Rangers Ballpark, Texas takes a 15-4 lead into the eighth inning. Six outs separate the Rangers from a second World Series in as many seasons.

Alexi Ogando worked two snappy innings of relief in the sixth and seventh, allowing just one hit. A case could be made for him being the Rangers’ most valuable pitcher in the ALCS.

Of course, Nelson Cruz has a hammerlock on the MVP with a record six homers and 13 RBIs, including another that reached the seats in the seventh with a man aboard.

But for Game 6 MVP honors, Michael Young’s three hits and five RBIs were clutch. Young’s first of two doubles in the third inning was an igniter.
