The Texas Rangers rallied from a 2 run hole, with solo home runs from Mitch Moreland and Adrian Beltre; then Mike Napoli took over Game 5 both offensively and defensively to carry the Rangers to a 4-2 win in the 2011 World Series.

With the game tied at two in the bottom of the eighth, Napoli cranked a double to the gap in right to plate two and give the Rangers the lead 4-2. Napoli also gunned down two Cardinals on attempted steals to stop potential rallies from the Red Birds.

Ranger relief pitcher Darren Oliver picked up his first World Series win in his eighteen year career to give the Rangers a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Rangers can wrap it up on Wednesday night in St. Louis for Game 6.
