Rangers Win on Walk-Off Grand Slam

Nelson Cruz, you just made history. For the first time in the long, illustrious Major League Baseball postseason history, Texas defeated Detroit, 7-3, thanks to Cruz' walk-off grand slam, the first ever game ending grand slam in postseason history. Texas now leads the series, 2-0. Game 3 Tuesday in Detroit.

The 11th inning grand slam was Cruz' second homer of the game, his first came as a solo shot in the 7th, which tied the game at 3. Cruz went 3 for 4 with two home runs, including the walk-off grand slam, said afterward, "On the walk-off at-bat: "First two pitches, I was too aggressive. I hit the ball, foul ball, foul ball. I told myself just slow down and try to hit a fly ball to the outfield.

"It's special, you know. When you get a chance to get a W, that's the most important thing."

"We didn't quite get it done," Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. "We haven't been able to come up with any big hits. That's really hard. We've had some opportunities, but up to this point, we just haven't been able to do that."

Only three teams have overcome 0-2 deficits in the LCS since it became a seven-game series in 1985: the Royals and Cardinals, both in '85, and the 2004 Red Sox, who famously clawed from an 0-3 hole to become World Series champions.

"They've got to win two more. We have to win four. It's that simple," Leyland said.
