The Rangers are One Win Away from their First Ever World Series Bling

*Game 6 postponed until Thursday due to crappy weather*

Colby Lewis will have a shot at history during Game 6 of the World Series Wednesday Thursday night, when he takes the hill against St. Louis Cardinals lefty Jaime Garcia and his neatly-trimmed facial hair. Take note, Derek Holland.

Just won win away from their first World Series title ever, the Texas Rangers have one definitive plan: to more or less not pitch to Albert Pujols. Meanwhile, the wild card-winning Cardinals are back in familiar win-or-go-home territory in a tasty rematch from Game 2.

Garcia owns a ridiculous 1.93 ERA at home, outpitching Lewis last Thursday with seven strikeouts and one walk over seven scoreless innings of three-hit ball. Then, the bullpen totally blew it and St. Louis lost 2-1. Obviously, Garcia is hoping he can either pitch a complete game in a similar fashion, or to have the relief corps not ruin his day.

The Cardinals are crossing their fingers that they can produce some runs tonight after going a terrible 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position in their 4-2 Game 5 loss Monday night at Rangers Ballpark. I'm sure the bullpen phones will be tested for perfection prior to the game.

When the hell did it start raining so much in Texas? I thought it was the desert around there.
