Jeff Wilson observes that a Nathaniel Lowe at bat that ended in an out was the turning point in the game because Lowe saw 15 pitches and then the floodgates opened.
Corey Seager and Marcus Semien joined a team that had just recorded over 100 losses because they bought in to the Rangers’ vision… and now we are seeing that vision come to fruition.

Corey Seager seems to really like playing playoff games in Globe Life.
Max Scherzer thinks he will be available to pitch in the ALCS.
