Early call to the bullpen, and Rangers win again

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Ron Washington walked to the mound in the third inning to pull his starting pitcher.

Good news for the Tigers? Or for Washington's Rangers?

You know the answer, as strange as it is.

At this point, the best thing the Rangers can do is get to their bullpen.

Whenever, however, whoever.

At this point, the two Rangers starters in this American League Championship Series have faced 40 batters, and 20 of them have reached base.

And the Rangers lead the ALCS over the Tigers, two games to none, after Nelson Cruz won Game 2 with an 11th-inning grand slam.

Why?

Because in two games, the Tigers have just five hits in 42 at-bats (a .119 batting average) against the Rangers bullpen.

In Game 1, Washington used five relievers for 4 1/3 innings, and the only hit was a bunt single. In Monday's Game 2, Ranger relievers again gave up one single in the first 5 1/3 innings they pitched, and overall they held the Tigers scoreless for the final 8 1/3.

Game 1, it was Mike Gonzalez and Alexi Ogando getting the biggest outs. Game 2, it was Scott Feldman and Ogando (again).

It hardly seems to matter who it is.

Through six postseason games, the Rangers have had just one starter record an out in the sixth inning, and not one who has gone past the sixth.

The Rangers have won five of the six games, and they're two wins away from advancing to their second straight World Series.

And the one starter who really did pitch well, Colby Lewis, starts Game 3 on Tuesday night at Comerica Park.
