Wednesday a.m. Rangers things

The Rangers are returning to the ALCS for the second year in a row.  The last A.L. West team to get to the ALCS in back-to-back seasons?  The Seattle Mariners in 2000-01.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Adrian Beltre's huge day, with Beltre becoming the sixth player in major league history to hit three home runs in a playoff game.

The headline to T.R. Sullivan's game story starts off with "Belt-Trey!"

Behind the paywall, Evan Grant writes about Alexi Ogando providing the Rangers with another weapon out of the bullpen.

Drew Davison writes about the contributions from the Ranger pen yesterday, with Derek Holland, Mike Adams, Ogando, and Neftali Feliz all coming up big.

Sullivan writes that the Rangers are going to go with the hot hand in the bullpen now, rather than sticking with roles.

Gil Lebreton writes about Beltre kickstarting the Ranger offense yesterday.

Joey Matches loves him some Adrian Beltre.

The S-T's notes have Mike Napoli saying the home plate collision yesterday between himself and Sean Rodriguez was clean, Matt Harrison being happy that he recorded a playoff win, the importance of Neftali Feliz, and Taylor Teagarden arriving at Tropicana Field yesterday, so that he could be activated if Yorvit Torrealba or Matt Treanor suffered any complications from banging heads on Monday.
