Another inning, another non-zero on the scoreboard for the Rangers, as Michael Young took Brad Penny to deep straightaway center field, where a young fan made a nifty running catch (upon which, he was set upon by a pack of like-minded youths).
That was nothing. After a routine single, Nelson Cruz launched a two-run homer just over the scoreboard in left.
It was only Cruz's sixth home run of the series, and only set a new postseason series record.
Now, Nelson Cruz is alone.
Of course the hit parade wasn't over yet. Two more singles -- making it 16 hits for the Rangers -- brought Jim Leyland from the dugout and sent Penny to the showers.
The seventh inning's not over, but it's already Rangers 15, Tigers 4 and one can't help feeling sorry for everyone who has to suffer through two more innings of this.
