The situation is ruined. There is nothing rough.
The Texas Rangers have won seven straight postseason games, boosting their dream of winning their first World Series.
Texas beat the Houston Astros’ last-minute chase and won 5 to 4 in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series (ALCS) held at Minute Maid Park on the 17th (Korean time).
Texas, which won two games in a row on the road following a 2-0 win in Game 1, will take a day off on the 18th and may decide to advance to the long-awaited World Series in Games 3, 4, and 5 held at home on the 19th and 21st.
Texas has never reached the top of the World Series since its founding in 1961. Until last year, he had been a military attaché for 62 years. It is longer than five teams that have never won a championship, including the Milwaukee Brewers (55 years), San Diego Padres (55 years), Seattle Mariners (37 years), Colorado Rockies (31 years), and Tampa Bay Rays (26 years).
After the Cleveland Guardians, whose last was in 1948, there has been a long period of time without a World Series championship.
It took Texas 36 years since its founding to advance to the postseason for the first time. After rising to first place in the AL West with 90 wins and 72 losses in 1996, they fell to the New York Yankees with 1 win and 3 losses in the Division Series.
Their first advance to the World Series was in 2010. Texas, which won the district championship with 90 wins and 72 losses that year, defeated Tampa Bay 3 wins and 2 losses in the Division Series and won the AL pennant by defeating the Yankees 4 to 2 in the ALCS. However, they lost 1 win and 4 losses to the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.
The following year, in 2011, Texas, which reached the top of the AL, bowed to the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series with a score of 3 wins and 4 losses. Texas, which was ahead by 3 wins and 2 losses until Game 5, lost 10 to 9 in Game 6 when opponent David Freeze hit a walk-off home run in the 11th inning, and in Game 7, they were unable to attack opposing pitchers, including starter Chris Carpenter, and lost 2 to 6. I gave up and ended up in second place.
This postseason is Texas’ ninth fall baseball season. But the momentum is the best. With 90 wins and 72 losses, they placed second in the wild card (WC) and secured a ticket to the fall baseball season, defeating Tampa Bay twice in the WC series and three wins over the Baltimore Orioles in the division series. They also won their first two games away to last year’s World Series champion Houston, so their momentum is sky-high.
Texas is the 6th team in history to win all of its first 7 postseason games. The record in this category is 8 consecutive wins. In 2014, the Kansas City Royals lost in Game 1 of the World Series against San Francisco after winning 8 straight games including WCS, DS, and LCS.안전놀이터
Nathan Ibaldi, who became the winning pitcher as the starting pitcher in Game 2 on this day with 5 hits, 1 walk, 9 strikeouts, and 3 runs in 6 innings, said after the game, “I feel like we are in a good mood,” and “We had a really good opportunity. The away trip. “Whether it’s home or home, we’re in the postseason and that’s important for all of us. We’re doing really well. We’ll continue to do this,” he said, expressing confidence.
Ibaldi created the biggest game of the day by throwing the bases loaded and giving up no runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, leading 5-2. Leadoff man Michael Brantley and Chas McCormick got back-to-back hits, and Jeremy Peña got on base due to an error by third baseman Josh Jeong, leaving the bases loaded. Ivaldi overcame the crisis by striking out Yanier Diaz and Jose Altuve with consecutive missed swings and then grounding Alex Bregman to third base.
Texas coach Bruce Bochy said, “(Evaldi) is one of the best pitchers in the major leagues. He has the ability to go to the next level when a crisis arises.”
In a best-of-seven postseason series, the team that won the first two games has passed the series 75 times out of 89 times, or 84%. Additionally, the team that won the first and second games on the road has won the series 26 times out of 29 times in history. In other words, the probability that Texas will advance to the World Series is 90%.
Texas announced Max Scherzer, who returned from injury, as the starter for Game 3 on the 19th. Houston’s starting pitcher is Christian Javier.
