Rangers Moments: No. 11



    As part of a season-ending series, we'll take a look at the 13 most memorable moments from the 2011 Texas Rangers season.

    No. 11

    When: Aug 8-Aug. 28

    What: The Texas Rangers owned the American League West in 2011, and never was that more evident than in a three-week stretch in August. Beginning Aug. 8 in Arlington against the Seattle Mariners, the Rangers went 10-3 against their divisional foes, culminating with a series win over the rival Los Angeles Angels on Aug. 28 in Arlington. The Rangers went 5-2 against the Angels in two August series, including taking 3 of 4 from the Angels in Anaheim and being a blown save away from a four-game sweep. The Rangers were a pretty average baseball team against the rest of the American League, going 6-9 in August against Central and East teams. But their dominance against the West allowed them to eventually pull away and win the West by 10 games thanks to their astonishing 40-17 season record against the division.
