    The Texas Rangers were finally on the board after Nelson Cruz hit a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth and Ian Kinsler was batted in for run number two in the bottom of the sixth.

    But that wasn't enough as the Tampa Bay Rays held on to force a game five, which will take place  on Tuesday in Florida. Texas pitcher Cliff Lee, who was victorious in game one of the ALDS, will get the start.

    The Tampa Bay Rays scored for the fifth time in the fifth with the Rays, Evan Longoria hitting his first home run of the game late in the inning to give the Rays a big lead.

    Tampa Bay were the first on the board with a run scored in the second,  two more runs scored in the fourth and one in the fifth.
