Rangers finish sweep of Orioles in ALDS; still have not lost in postseason

The postseason belongs to the Texas Rangers so far.

The boys from Arlington are the first to punch their ticket to the Championship Series after downing the Baltimore Orioles, 7-1, on Tuesday night, sweeping them in the best-of-five ALDS.

The Rangers have used the long ball all year long, and that didn’t change one iota on Tuesday. Corey Seager opened up the scoring with a solo shot in the first inning, and in the second inning following a Mitch Garver two-run double, Adolis Garcia launched a three-run jack to make it a 6-0 ball game. Nathaniel Lowe added a solo homer in the seventh.

It’s Texas’ first ALCS appearance since 2011. If Houston wins, it will be the first time since 2008 that American League division rivals will face off in for a chance to play in the World Series.
