It took 50 long years for the Texas Rangers to make the World Series. Led by the heroics in pitching with Cliff Lee, to Nelson Cruz; the Rangers finally made it. However, they fell to the San Francisco Giants.

Anyways, that was last year.

This year, the Rangers are back and are looking to win for the first time in two trips now to the big show.

Cruz had a big home run in the game while Micheal Young became clutch as the Rangers became repeat champions in the American League, the first time a team has done that in a decade; when the New York Yankees won four in a row from 1998-2001.

Oh, and the Rangers just really handed it to the Tigers, having a nine-run inning in the third, blowing out Detroit in a 15-5 victory. It was one heck of a showing by Texas, as they win game six.

"This a great trophy, we're real proud of it," Young said. "But we're looking forward to the one with all the flags on it. ... Happy, but not satisfied."

The Rangers can become satisfied finally, as they will either face the St. Louis Cardinals or the Milwaukee Brewers for the World Series title.

Cruz had his sixth home-run of the series in the seventh inning to basically close out the game for good. After the game, Cruz was selected the ALCS MVP for his amazing performances.

"We wanted to get to the World Series. But the bottom line is getting to the World Series and winning it. We feel pretty confident about ourselves," manager Ron Washington said. "More than anything else, the commitment they made in November after San Francisco sent us home, they held true to it."

The first game of the World Series will be on Wednesday on the road at either St. Louis or Milwaukee. Today is game six for NLCS, as the Cardinals are currently leading 3-2. I am hoping for the Cards to get the win. I have the Cardinals winning it all, led by Albert Pujols.

A solid showing by Texas, and I tip my hat off to them.

Great job, guys!
