Is Wednesday the day that will be remembered by Texas Rangers fans everywhere?
The Rangers have a chance to clinch their first World Series title in the 63-year history of the franchise, entering Game 5 up 3-1 in the series over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Texas will send its best big-game pitcher to the mound, Nathan Eovaldi, while Arizona counters with ace Zac Gallen in a starting pitcher rematch of Game 1.
Both team’s strengths will be pitted against each other in this Game 5, as the Rangers enter having won all 10 of their road games this postseason, while the Diamondbacks, whose mottos include “Answerbacks,” “Snakes Alive” and “embrace the chaos” need to pull off their most incredible comeback yet.
Can the Rangers close it out and finally reach the mountaintop? Or will the D-backs be able to force a Game 6 in Arlington on Friday?
