ALCS Game 3 Thread: Rangers @ Tigers, 5p

Nelson Cruz with a well-earned shaving-cream pie.

Colby Lewis (1-0, 1.50) vs. Doug Fister (1-1, 6.52).

Uh, I think Texas has the momentum in this one. Yesterday, an extra-innings walkoff grand slam by Nelson Cruz — his second of the game — gave the Rangers a 2-0 series lead, and the psychological edge. The Tigers return to the comfort of Comerica Park, but is it enough with Justin Verlander not scheduled to pitch again until Game 5?

I'm bored.

Theo Epstein on the verge of leaving Boston for the Cubs' gig.

I guess we're stuck with Neddie for another year.

Is someone going to fist one off of Fister, Joe Buck?

MR.F said...

Fister? I barely even know her.

MR.F said...

Sometimes I can't help myself.

MR.F said...

Victor Martinez just tied the game with a solo shot.

I really do hate that Brian Wilson commercial.

Mr. Customer said...

Brian Wilson can go get the syphilis.

MR.F said...

Tigers take the lead and still threatening.

MR.F said...

Nevermind. 2-1 going to the 7th.

MR.F said...

Now 3-1 on a Jhonny Peralta solo shot.

MR.F said...

Now 4-1.

MR.F said...

Now 5-1 on Miguel Cabrera home run.

MR.F said...

5-2 on an Ian Kinsler ground out.

Mr. Customer said...

Fister went surprisingly deep.

Spank Horst said...

Nasty.

Josh S. said...

Did Joe Buck say this Texas pitcher gave up grand slams to "consecutive batters?" How would one do that exactly.

Mr. Customer said...

Apparently, he sucks so hard they have modfied the rules of the game to express it.

Josh S. said...

Had to look it up. It was consecutive batters over two appearances.

Spank Horst said...

Either way, he's a hack.

Spank Horst said...

Los Tigres De Detwat are victorious.

Spank Horst said...

Great thread. Later,mang.

Dusty Baker said...

Had to watch on Tivo replay tonight.

Extremely disappointed that Tim McCarver is back in the booth.

Josh S. said...

Yeah, I was hoping McCarver would get Wally Pipped.
