Rangers vs. Tigers LIVE UPDATES: ALCS Game 2 In Arlington
The Detroit Tigers look to avoid an 0-2 deficit in the ALCS against the Texas Rangers tonight in Game 2 in Arlington, Texas.
Texas' Derek Holland, who pitched 1.1 innings in a relief appearance in the ALDS clincher against the Rays, takes the mound and will face off against Detroit's Max Scherzer.
The Rangers took Game 1 on Saturday night, which was delayed twice by rain, behind Nelson Cruz's big home run in the fourth inning. Game 2 was postponed Sunday night due of the expectation of more rain.
Will the Rangers take a commanding 2-0 lead? Or will the Tigers bounce back to tie the series?
