Home Plate Update June 2018 - Page 14

HISTORIC MOMENTS In Rangers History Games 4 and 5 of the 2011 World Series — October 23-24, 2011 Down 2-1 in the 2011 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Rangers entered Game 4 in Arlington determined not to fall behind 3-1 in the series. In Game 4, the Rangers were led by a masterful pitching performance from lefty Derek Holland. Holland pitched 8 1/3 shutout innings and struck out seven batters. Mike Napoli also homered as the Rangers went on to even up the series with a 4-0 victory. In Game 5, also played in Arlington, the Rangers were tied 2-2 in the 8th inning, when they scored two late runs on a double by Mike Napoli to win 4-2. Darren Oliver capped off the dramatic victory, earning the win in relief. While the Rangers went on to lose the World Series four games to three to the Cardinals, the back-to-back wins to take a series lead at home are certainly one of the more memorable moments in Rangers postseason history.
