Texas Rangers

Toronto Blue Jays



Evening All - Toronto went to town in Texas last night, humping the Rangers 10-1 in Game One of the ALDS. Game 2 starts shortly. Can Texas respond or will they wave the white flag again?

Stephen Clark here again for this one and Toronto have had a late withdrawal from their line up. Second baseman and leadoff hitter Devon Travis has a niggly knee, so Ezequiel Carrera goes to the top of the order and Darwin Barney comes in at second base and will bat 9th.

Texas have made a couple of changes after last night's horror show. Ryan Rua and Nomar Mazara are in for Mitch Moreland and Shin-Soo Choo.

TEXAS RANGERS Gomez LF Desmond CF Beltran DH Beltre 3B Odor 2B Lucroy C Rua LF Andrus SS Mazara RF Darvish P

All set to go in Texas very soon. A feast of play off baseball today with 4 games in total. After this it's game 2 in Cleveland where the Indians have a 1-0 lead over Boston following last night's late game. Then the NLDS series kick off with Washington v LA Dodgers and Chicago Cubs v San Francisco Giants

Looks like there is a bit of rain in the air in Arlington this afternoon. Noon in Texas I believe if my World Clock is in sync.

If you want to keep up with all the nights sport, then can I direct you to http://www.bytheminute.co/live where we currently have Jody Jamison live at the UFC weigh-in in Manchester. Actually there!! We are quite literally going places.

First out is already done as Ezequiel Carrera flies out the 2nd pitch of the day to Ian Desmond in centre field. Good start for Yu Darvish. Josh Donaldson follows on the very next pitch, right to the same spot. Two away for Toronto in four pitches.

Edwin Encarnacion is up next and he swings so hard the bat flies right out of his hands as he goes down on one knee. Toronto have come out swinging and Darvish is slinging. Edwin makes contact eventually but it is all along the ground to Andrus and the inning is over TOR 0 TEX 0 Mid 1
