>> joe: tonight's game is sponsored by -- >> joe: you can catch all the action of the 2011 major league baseball league championship series on fox and tbs. join the post season debate at mlb fan and follow the action on twitter, hashtag post season. legends are born in october. rick porcello trying to throw his name on that list with a job he is doing here tonight. the bottom two in the line-up. david murphy first up. murphy doubles.
5:05 pm
his first time up. 1-1. in the air to left. murphy is 2-2. so the lead-off man is on. the number nine man, yorvit torrealba walks in. >> joe: tying run at the plate.
5:06 pm
torrealba pops it up. santiago has the one out. [ applause ] now back to the top of the order and ian kinsler. here is the night for kinsler. grounded to third. grounded to short. great news from california. bryan stow, the firefighter who was beaten at dodger stadium at the beginning of the season was released from the hospital. he was put in rehab facility, so he is making progress. >> tim: that is wonderful. >> joe: that story gets better and better. an awful situation. a shot down the line. off the bat o of kinsler. murphy digs and comes to the plate. delmon young trouble in the corner. it's 2-1. >> tim: that is a great play by third base coach dave
5:07 pm
anderson who watched the play develop. he was going to hold murphy at third base. watch the play develop. and then when the ball scooted by delmon young, he sent david murphy and the rangers are on the board. it's treacherous footing on the bases. david murphy had to go around the bases jinggerly. dave anderson waited until he saw the play completed and once the ball got by young, he sent david murphy to score the first run. >> joe: that is over but low ball one. here is the shot between inge and the line. there is dave anderson waiting and now waving. that is foul. off the bat of elvis andrus. a dying run at second with one out in the sixth inning.
5:08 pm
2-1 now. rbi double by kinsler to score. murphy led off with the second hit of the night. >> tim: if you are a base runner in that situation you run as hard as you until you get to a stop sign. realizing dave anderson the third base coach waited as long as he could and at the last minute waved murphy home. >> joe: andrus shows bunt. that drags inge a couple of steps in. on deck is the big bat of josh hamilton. the rangers can't find a hit with runners in scoring position. the count goes 3-1. rangers can get you up and down the line-up.
5:09 pm
>> tim: a key situation right here with the count 3-1 to andrus. >> joe: kinsler trying to steal third. not in time. strike two at the plate. aggressive is kinsler. he just made it. >> tim: how about the wherewithal to give a fake run and put the bat right in the eyes of the catcher alex avila. avila made a very nice play. that obscuring the view of the catch every when a hitter weighs that bat and that hand was just in there. but it's time to try to steal third with one out. you don't want to make the first or third out at third. but if you take a reasonable chance and make the second out, the catch. >> joe: infield is in. andrus has tied this game.
5:10 pm
a base hit to right centerfield. it's 2-2. the first rbi of the post season for elvis andrus. >> tim: that by the way, the first stolen base for the rangers since game three of the division series. you can credit kinsler bringing the infield in. i think it would have been a base hit for andrus anyway but with the infield in, it was clearly a base hit to right center to tie the game. >> joe: so with josh hamilton coming up, a visit to the mound from the pitching coach jeff jones. it's 2-2 in the top of the sixth. the young rick porcello, 22, will now try to keep it 2-2 before the heart of his order. cabrera, victor martinez and delmon young come to the plate in the bottom of the inning.
5:11 pm
daniel schlereth is the left-hander. and al alburquerque is the right-hander getting loose for the tigers in their pen. >> joe: now it's hamilton against porcello. check on elvis andrus who stole 37 in the regular season. does not have one this post season. >> tim: keep in mind, josh hamilton swung at more first pitching than any major leaguer this year. >> joe: ball one. >> joe: the offense is loose in the sixth for the rangers. they have tied it and have the big power man at the plate. that is inside.
5:12 pm
2-0. >> tim: josh hamilton telling you and me that that pitch right there, that ball under the arms is the pitch that he is looking for off rick porcello to jack. this pitch right here. didn't tail back out over the plate but that is the pitch he is looking for to hit out of ballpark. >> joe: on a line to center. jackson makes a nice catch. that ball hit right at him back to grab it. with the out. >> tim: he got that pitch, joe, on a 2-0 count, but he didn't pull it. so that little extra oomph by porcello, that tailing fastball inside. he hits it hard. but austin jackson is there. >> joe: hit that one-handed for out number two. so hamilton is 0-3 tonight. four out of 16 in this alcs. batter is michael young.
5:13 pm
again, the heart of the order will bat. for the tigers in their half of this sixth. ball one inside. e-trade stopwatch. the tigers offense last night, three home runs, tying a franchise record in the post season. michael young, the man at the plate. one for 14 in this series still no rbis. 3 for 29 this post season. he is too good of a hitter for that. you have to figure that ron washington, his manager does, only a matter of time. we don't have forever in october. it has to click here soon. 1-0. he went around. strike one. >> tim: michael young showing once again that everybody presses. he is pressing right here. caught it between, the worst thing it could be.
5:14 pm
and do as a hitter. >> joe: porcello, 14-game winner in the regular season brings home a 1-1. hop steps off. this is the spot for elvis andrus to run. he can get a good jump. might have been leaning, and he is able to get back. >> tim: you have to lean a little farther with the infield in as bad of shape as it's been. avoid spots on the way to second. >> joe: bigger lead. and again, close.
5:15 pm
now elvis is going to dig around in that area, where he is taking his lead. >> joe: good news in that the rain has stopped. 1-1. strike two. >> joe: beltre on deck.
5:16 pm
>> joe: 2-2. >> joe: program alert for you. if you are tuning in to the "x factor" you will get two hours tomorrow night. 8:0:00 eastern/7:00 central. two out, two runs home. rangers have tied it. porcello steps off. that is called from the du dugout. leyland to avila. avila to porcello. this one gets away. and will go into the dugout,
5:17 pm
sending elvis andrus down to second base. >> tim: gene mach was a great manager and he used to tell base runners give the pitcher something else to think about other than the hitter. elvis andrus did that. draws a ball in the dirt. and is on second anyway. so he didn't have to steal second base. >> joe: and now for a guy like michael young, doesn't hit a ton of home runs, the rbi chance is easier. in to centerfield. base hit. austin jackson will come up throwing. at the plate. safe. rangers lead. down to second, young, who has his first rbi of the post season. all those throws over, finally the error and it leads to the go-ahead run in the sixth.
5:18 pm
job excellent base running by elvis andrus drawing the error from porcello. then excellent hitting and base running by michael young. throwing to second base on the throw home. jackson throws it low enough. but miguel cabrera isn't there. and couldn't cut the ball off. so texas running the bases well. the third run of the inning. >> joe: and their first lead of the night. a pitch inside on adrian beltre. [ cheering ] >> tim: at first, yeah, for the slide at home. the second "yeah" was for the slide at second. >> joe: the count 1-0 on beltre. porcello starting to lose his good control. he has been so good all night.
5:19 pm
with first pitch strikes. here is ron washington. we just heard him in the dugout about how excited he gets. >> manager: i like to see good baseball and they give that to me every night when i watch them play. i enjoy watching my guys play. i'm just an excitable guy. when i see good things happening on the field, it just excites me. >> joe: we just saw something that excited ron washington a moment ago. >> tim: can't blame him. >> joe: here is a 2-0. strike one on beltre. >> tim: ron washington from new orleans, the big easy. he realizes there is nothing easy about playing this game.
5:20 pm
>> joe: see in the background, ogando starting to get loose. inge makes the stop. and the throw. but three runs in the sixth for the texas rangers. finally breaking through. rbi by michael young, his first of the post season. the rangers lead 3-2. do you have an irregular heartbeat called aial fibrillation, or afib, that's not caused by a heart valve problem? are you taking warfarin to reduce your risk of stroke caused by a clot? you should know about pradaxa. an important study showed that pradaxa 150mg reduced stroke risk 35% more than warfarin. and with pradaxa, there's no need for those regular blood tests. pradaxa is progress. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding, and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have kidney problems or a bleeding condition,like s. or if you take aspirin products,

5:26 pm
the fourth walk handed to the tigers in this game. ogando comes out of the pen and walks cabrera. >> tim: ogando threw six fastball to get to that 3-2 count. and then cabrera fought that ball and then he fouled one off. then he tried to go to the slider. and missed down. >> joe: adrian gonzalez, the goe gonzalez, the left-hander with his coat on. neftali feliz trying to get the blood flowing a little bit on a cool, wet night. victor martinez homered last night from this side of the plate. ball one. while we say "oblique" to be more specific is an intercostal injury. it's down around the side in the low back.
5:27 pm
it bothered him last night, the slow home run trot. but he has not bowed out. >> joe: this is during pre-game. when victor martinez reaches under the back of nelson cruz to show him where the pain is. >> tim: a couple of things. on a swing and a miss, that's when i suspect it will hurt him the most. when he makes contact, i don't think so. it's what you do from a hitter's standpoint, you try to rush the swing and hit that bat out there so you're not late. realizing that you don't have the quick hands like you normally would. >> joe: the count 2-1. st. louis jumps on top of milwaukee 2-nothing. on a two-run double by -- >> tim: don't tell me.

5:29 pm

5:30 pm
you have two slow runners. one at the plate. one at first. stay out of the double play if you send the runner. that would b was the intent of m leyland but the ball was in the air. >> joe: strike one on young. >> tim: fastball swing and a slider. delmon young misses this by a foot. >> joe: he has struck out, flied out. in the hole. and 0-2. >> two sliders. two bad swings. >> joe: he has yet to see that 97, 98 out of the hand of ogando. another slider. three in a row. and delmon young is down. two out.
5:31 pm
>> tim: pretty simple sequence when you look this bad on the first two pitches. way outside. not quite as far outside. outside. three sliders gets young. >> joe: brings in avila. tying run at first. two out now. and avila takes ball one. outside. alex has struck out, grounded out, for 15 in this alcs. >> joe: did hit 19 home runs in the regular season. 1-1. >> tim: 16 of those off

right-handed pitching. wow! >> joe: so the strike-outs are up. the hits are down. and avila actually ended the regular season red hot. very good the last couple of months. but the post season, it's all caught up to him. >> tim: one swing of the bat, however, it makes everybody in detroit forget about it. >> joe: cabrera started, then stopped. the pitch down and away for ball two.
