The Tigers had plenty of chances to win this one. But they didn't. Nelson Cruz hit a homer to tie it in the 7th at 3-3 off Max Scherzer then hit a walk-off grand slam to win it in the 11th off Ryan Perry. Final score: Rangers 7, Tigers 3. The Rangers now lead the American League Championship Series 2 games to none.
Game 3 will be tomorrow night in Detroit. Doug Fister will take the mound for the Tigers to try to keep Detroit in this one. Colby Lewis gets the start for the Rangers. 8:05 first pitch. The next three scheduled games are in Detroit, so the Tigers have a chance to bounce back. They will need to win all three to have a realistic chance to advance to the World Series. The first two games were really close, so anything is possible.
