Cruz control, Rangers take 3-1 lead in ALCS

The "Power" Rangers took a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Detroit Tigers as their offense exploded for 4 runs in the top of the 11th to seal the game. After taking a 2-0 lead after a double by Miguel Cabrera, the Rangers took the lead with RBIs by Kinsler, Andrus, and Young. The Tigers would tie things up and send the game to extra innings as Brandon Inge hit a solo shot over the left field wall. In the top of the 11th Napoli hit the go ahead RBI off of Jose Valverde, then Nelly Cruz ended the game yet again by smashing a 3-run homer to put the game out of reach. Cruz hit the go-ahead homer in game 1 and the game-tying and walk-off slam in game 2. By smashing 4 homers in the ALCS, he looks to be the AL postseason MVP. CJ Wilson will face Verlander tomorrow in game 5 of the ALCS as the Rangers look to advance to the World Series for the second consecutive year.
