The Texas Rangers won the World Series for the first time in their history and won the Major League Baseball title. In a long, exciting game, the Rangers won 5-0 at the Arizona Diamondbacks.
After six innings it was still 0-0, and the Rangers only scored their last four points in the ninth and final inning. The win was the fourth in Game 5 of the Finals series and the third in a row in Phoenix. The Rangers achieved a perfect record of eleven wins in eleven away games in the playoffs.
After over 10,000 games, you’ve reached your goal
For the Rangers, it is the first title in the 63-year history of the franchise, which was founded in 1961 as the Washington Senators. Since then, the team has played in five stadiums, had around two dozen coaches and, according to US media calculations, has played 10,033 games before the players can call themselves champions for the first time. In 2011, the team came close and only needed one more strike twice in the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals, but still lost.
The Rangers won the decisive fourth victory without Adolis García and pitcher Max Scherzer, both of whom had been removed from the squad before game four due to injuries. Both the Rangers and the Diamondbacks qualified for the playoffs via a wild card and prevailed as underdogs against stronger opponents on the way to the World Series.
The Rangers’ first title leaves only five teams in the MLB that have never won the championship: the Colorado Rockies, Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners and the Tampa Bay Rays.
