Valencia Making A Late Push For AL ROY

Batting 6th, Danny Valencia was 2-7 with 2 HRs (his 6th and 7th), 5 RBIs (a season-high), and 2 runs scored against the Tigers. Valencia's 1st long ball was his 2nd grand slam of the season. This was the 1st multi-HR game of his career. I don't see Valencia getting more votes for AL Rookie of the Year than Neftali Feliz or Austin Jackson, but he'll be in the running.

Batting 5th, Ian Kinsler was 2-3 with 1 BB, 1 double (his 19th), 1 run scored, and 1 SB (his 14th) against the A's. The Rangers have clinched the AL West. This will be Kinsler's 1st postseason appearance. Not sure if Scott Feldman will be included on the postseason roster...

Batting 7th, Sam Fuld was 2-4 with 2 RBIs and 1 run scored against the Cardinals. Fuld drove in what turned out to be the game-winning run in the 3rd inning.

Batting 5th, Ike Davis was 1-4 with 1 run scored against the Phillies.

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 0-4 against the Marlins.

Craig Breslow pitched 1 scoreless inning on 1 hit against the Rangers.

It was great to see Fuld get a game in and perform well in it.

Breslow with yet another appearance. Yeesh. Valencia is scary to a Yankee fan.
