Rangers History Today: Hello World Series

It was a happy day for long-suffering Rangers fans, as Texas clinched its first berth in the World Series, beating the Yankees doing it.

Low-A Down East defeated Charleston on Saturday night, 9-3, to even the best-of-five Low-A Championship Series at 2-2.

Keyber Rodriguez led the way on offense, going 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI, a walk, and two runs scored. His two-run shot in the fourth inning tied the contest at 3-3, and Down East would take control with a four-run sixth inning. Owen White started and earned the win, allowing three runs (two earned) on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts in five innings.

The decisive Game 5 is set for Sunday at 5 p.m. ET/4 p.m. CT in Charleston, with Mason Englert on the hill for the Woodies. Down East is seeking its first league championship title since 2017, when the Wood Ducks were playing at the High-A level.
