ST. LOUIS A member of the Texas Rangers team that lost to the San Francisco Giants in the World Series last year, Bengie Molina is back at the Fall Classic again. But it's not with the Rangers or Cardinals, two teams he once thought he might play for this season. It's to support baby brother Yadier, the Cardinals All-Star catcher who had three hits in Monday's Game 5 and has driven in five runs in the Series a team record for a catcher. "It's a little weird because I was here last year playing for the Rangers and all of a sudden here's my brother trying to beat them," Bengie Molina said. "It's kind of a weird feeling but I'm behind Yadi 100 percent and I want him to win it. "I know what all they went through all year. It's not easy to be here. It wasn't easy for them and it will be great, it will be awesome if they win." Between Bengie, Yadier and middle brother Jose, there already are five World Series rings in the...

Wilson good enough in possible walk-off for Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- When C.J. Wilson walked off the mound during the sixth inning in what could have been his last start for the Texas Rangers, they were down by a run.

Washington's success isn't dumb luck

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Before Game 5, Rangers manager Ron Washington was asked about his "unorthodox" managing style. The words unorthodox being that of the questioner and not my opinion. He went into a decently long answer about being aggressive, knowing his team and following his gut. Then he dropped a truth bullet. "I'm not as dumb as people think I am,"...

Albert Pujols Prepared For Game 6 By Shopping At Best Buy

St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols prepared for Game 6 of the World Series by shopping at Best Buy and buying a DVD. Here’s a photo of Pujols that was uploaded by your_shirt_guy on yfrog. He was pretty excited. “A friend of mine’s mom ran into Albert Pujols at best buy today,” your_shirt_guy wrote. “I wonder what that movie is in his hand.” The photo was taken...

Plaschke Interviews Scioscia On The Napoli Trade

Sad, really: "If you say our organization didn't value Mike Napoli, it's absolutely wrong," he said. "The hindsight of this trade is 20/20 vision, and right now, obviously in the playoffs, that vision carries lot of weight. But I still think there is a lot of upside of what our team can become with Vernon." This is delusional. Vernon Wells, 2010 road...

Wilson does enough to give Texas a chance

It wasn't pretty, but C.J. Wilson helped pull the Rangers within one win of a World Series title.

Rangers take Series lead

Mike Napoli's two-run double in the eighth inning gave the Rangers a 4-2 win and a 3-2 series lead over the Cardinals.

Lack of HRs not stressing Hamilton

Josh Hamilton was rifling through his bag Wednesday afternoon, trying to find the right bat to sign for a fan. Hitters are superstitious about this kind of thing, always making sure they don't give one away that has a few more hits in it. Rangers pitcher C.J.

Washington, Rangers use smarts, strength to win Game 5

Texas is one win away from a title. Scott Miller says Ron Washington's brain and Mike Napoli's brawn -- also far from shabby on defense -- overwhelm the Cardinals, who find themselves in a do-or-die situation.

Erratic bullpens may decide Series champion

ARLINGTON, Texas -- At the conclusion of the first inning on Sunday night, in which Rangers starter Derek Holland retired the Cardinals' side in order, including a strikeout of scorching hot Allen Craig and a groundout from history-making Albert Pujols, Texas reliever Mike Adams turned toward bullpen-mate Scott Feldman and offered a prediction.

This just in (again) from North Texas ...

Mike Napoli. (Wow!)

Texas Takes 3-2 Series Lead Over St. Louis

Mike Napoli hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning against Marc Rzepczynski, and the Texas Rangers rallied from a two-run deficit to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 on Monday night and take a 3-2 World Series lead. Solo home runs by Mitch Moreland in the third and Adrian Beltre in the sixth off Chris Carpenter sparked the Texas comeback. Michael Young doubled off...
