Rangers offense comes alive
David Murphy could sense it.
Before Nelson Cruz stepped to the plate, hoping to ignite yet another rally after his team fell behind by three runs in the top of the inning, Murphy knew something special was going to happen.
"When we're clicking and things are going well as an offense and there's that positive vibe about us, it doesn't matter what the deficit is," Murphy said. "It doesn't matter who's on the mound, we're going to battle until our last out. We always have that killer instinct in us. We feel like we're going to get the job done every single time. Tonight was one of those nights where it felt like a win was inevitable."
Murphy and his teammates hadn't felt that way in some time. But Wednesday's dramatic, 11-10 walk-off win over the Los Angeles Angels that ended with most of the team jumping up and down with Elvis Andrus near second base, has the Rangers hoping they've finally grabbed some missing offensive mojo.
