Texas Rangers Blank St. Louis Cardinals 4-0
The Rangers Game 4 starting pitcher, Derrick Holland, shut down the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday night throwing 8 1/3 innings of shut-out baseball to lead the Rangers to a 4-0 win.
Holland struck out 7, walked only two, and the Rangers Mike Napoli’s bottom of sixth inning 3-run blast gave the Rangers all the runs they would need to tie the 2011 World Series 2-2. The 4-0 shut-out was the first American League World Series shut-out since the Chicago White Sox blanked the Houston Astros 1-0 in 2005.
Rangers fans can only hope that Monday nights Game 5 starter C. J. Wilson (0-3) in the postseason, can step up and hopefully shut down the Cardinals potent offense, who put up 16 runs on Texas in Game 3.
