The Rangers are now just one win away from their World Series ever. C.J. Wilson got off to a rough start but he settled in and the pen picked him up. He gave up two runs in the second but fortunately that’s all that the Cardinals got. Mitch Moreland hit a solo home run in the third to cut the lead in half. Then in the sixth, Adrian Beltre tied the game up with a solo home run. Then in the bottom of the eighth, Mike Napoli struck again and he doubled home two runs that proved to be the game winners.
C.J. Wilson gave up the two runs on four hits and five walks with three strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings. Scott Feldman, Alexi Ogando, Darren Oliver and Neftali Feliz then all shut out the Cardinals the rest of the way for the win.
Now the scene moves back to St. Louis. The Rangers are one win away from their first World Series. Colby Lewis will get the ball in that one.
