Kinsler Leads The Charge

Batting 6th, Ian Kinsler was 3-4 with 1 HR (his 3rd of the postseason), 3 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Rays.

The Rangers have won their 1st playoff series and will advance to the ALCS for the 1st time in franchise history.

Kinsler hit safely and scored a run in all 5 games of the ALDS. He hit a team-best .444 (8 for 18) with 2 BBs, 3 HRs (tied with Nelson Cruz for the team lead), scored 5 runs, and drove in a team-high 6 runs.

Can't really have a better series than that. The ALCS kicks off on Friday in Texas. Bring on the Yankees!
