ALDS Game 2 Score: Evan Longoria's Homer Cuts Texas' Lead To 7-6

It's a good thing the Rangers grabbed some insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth. Ian Kinsler doubled home Mike Napoli and Nelson Cruz, extending Texas' lead to 7-3 headed into the seventh inning.

Tampa Bay, though, has proven they won't go quietly into the night. 

Koji Uehara started the seventh inning, giving up a hit and a walk before Evan Longoria blasted a three run home run, cutting Texas' lead to one run with one swing of the bat. 

Uehara was pulled after Longoria's homer, failing to record an out in his outing. Rangers manager Ron Washington went to Darren Oliver, who retired the next three batters in order.

Still, Texas holds onto the lead and simply needs to record six outs to even up the ALDS at a game a piece.
