Baseball: Rangers win, take commanding ALCS lead

-A A +A
By Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — They have wandered on baseball's outskirts for a half-century, unwanted in Washington, trounced with regularity in Texas.

Now those Texas Rangers, in the 50th season of the team's existence, are just one win from reaching the World Series for the very first time.

"It's been our goal for awhile now," Michael Young said after another blowout of the defending champion New York Yankees, 10-3 Tuesday night, gave the Rangers a 3-1 AL championship series lead.

"I think one thing this club has done is stay focused and not get ahead of ourselves," Young said. "We know what our ultimate goal is."

Bengie Molina hit a go-ahead, three-run homer off A.J. Burnett in the sixth inning, Josh Hamilton added a pair of solo drives to give him four in four games and Nelson Cruz also went deep. The Rangers were a little giddy.

"It's not bad for a fat kid that everyone makes fun of when he runs," Molina said.

Instead of another pinstriped World Series, baseball's showcase would move down deep into the heart of Texas with a win by the Rangers in Game 5 Wednesday.

"We came here, we are supposed to lose," Molina said.
