Major League Baseball Fantasy Draft News October 5th 2015

Texas Rangers Win AL West Division with 9-2 victory against LA Angels

The Texas Rangers were able to hold off the charge of the Houston Astros but they needed to do it in Game 162 to become AL Western division champions.

The Rangers were clinging to a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning when they ignited for six runs to blow the game wide open. Texas had ten hits in the victory while silencing the Angels bats to just three hits.

Delino DeShields Jr.

The Rangers centerfielder had two hits with two runs scored and a walk in the victory. He has hits in five of six games. DeShields has his average up to .261 with two homers and 37 RBIs. He had been battling a 4 for 22 slump entering the game.

Shin Soo Choo

Choo had a hit with two runs scored in the division clincher. He has been hot the final months of the season and finished the regular season with a .276 batting average with 22 homers and 82 RBIs. He has hits in three straight and nine of ten games.

Prince Fielder

The Texas Rangers power hitting DH led the everyday hitters with a .305 batting average with 23 homers and 98 RBIs. He had a hit with two RBIs on Sunday. The post season wasn’t too kind to Fielder in the past.

Adrian Beltre

The 36 year old third baseman was huge on Sunday with two hits a home run with three RBIs and two runs scored. Beltre hammered the baseball in the month of October with a batting average of .455. He finished the regular season with a .287 hitting average with 18 homers and 83 RBIs.
