The odds do not look good for the Texas Rangers.
No team from Texas has ever won a World Series game. That's right -- the Astros got swept in their only appearance in 2005 and the Rangers haven't won yet. That's 0-6.
Nevertheless, Jonathan Sanchez was, um, less than sharp in his final NLCS start and the Giants won largely because their bullpen bailed him out. Colby Lewis has walked a lot of hitters (11) in three postseason starts, but still has a pretty good WHIP of 1.18 and an ERA of 1.45.
On paper, the Rangers don't have much of a chance. But as the old cliche goes, they don't play the games on paper. Note that tonight's game starts an hour earlier than the first two -- maybe that'll get it done before 10 pm.
