GAME FOUR OF THE ALCS--Texas Rangers at Detroit Tigers
First Pitch: 3:19 pm CT
TV: Your local FOX affiliate
Radio: ESPN Radio



Tonight, the Tigers look to even the series at 2 games each against the Texas Rangers at Comerica Park. The Rangers won Game 2 of the series on Monday off a Nelson Cruz walk-off grand slam, which might just be the most exciting and theatrical way to end a game ever. Just saying. The Tigers then won their first game of the series last night at home, with some key pitching and timely hits. Pitchers are...

Gallardo has been very solid for the Brewers this year, and he's pitched well in the postseason. Also, he looks like he's having a lot of fun in that picture, so that's nice.

Both teams in the NLCS are throwing their aces out tonight. It should be great baseball. Enjoy!

EDIT/UPDATE: Looks like Game 4 of the ALCS has been delayed by rain for a while. Bummer!
