washingtonOct 23, (THAINDIAN NEWS) It was the best day for Texas Rangers manager, Ron Washington, as his team could finally make it to the World Series 2010, after defeating the New York Yankees on Friday. Now, since Texas Rangers would definitely be part of the world series, in a way it feels relieved. However, at the same time, it is also ready to take up the prospective pressure, as it has to fight against either the Philadelphia Philles or the San Francisco Giants, both of whom are quite strong competition.

Although it was a day for the Texas Rangers, winning the match was not really a cake walk for them, as the friction offered by their opponent was quite a tough one to handle. Ron Washington appraised Colby Lewis for his performance. He threw 103 pitches, which is the same number that he scored in the second game a week ago. But this time it was even better, as it lasted for eight innings, enabling only one run off three hits. He walked just three, striking out seven Yankees. He finished the game with 2-0 record. When he left the game in the eighth inning, he was revered with a huge round of applause by all the ranger fans in the stadium. Darren O’Day, the pitcher, did not pitch on Friday, but he was overwhelmed to see his team mates making it to the World Series. Ranger outfielder David Murphy, also played an amazing game, but somehow, he was overshadowed by the performance of Colby Lewis.

Ron Washington is extremely proud of his team and its spirit. He said that not even for once they thought that the game was on their side, especially because their opponents were the Yankees. That is the reason why they did not dare to bring their energy down and were constantly striving to get 27, all through out the game, which resulted in their victory.
