Take commanding lead in series

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Michael Young hit a three-run homer
after a disputed check-swing, helping C.J. Wilson and the Texas
Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-0 Thursday for a 2-0 lead in
their AL division series.

Texas is the only current major league franchise that's never
won a playoff series. The AL West champions can change that with
one win this weekend, when the best-of-five matchup shifts to
Rangers Ballpark.

Ian Kinsler also homered for the Rangers, who are in the
playoffs for the first time since 1999 and hadn't won a postseason
game in 14 years before Cliff Lee shut down the sputtering Rays in
their home park on Wednesday.
