Scenes from Game 3 of the World Series

100_2108.JPGI went on a very unexpected last-minute trip this weekend.  To Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas, to Game 3 of the World Series.

Myself, along with our General Manager Ted Tornow and Assistant GM Nate Kreinbrink embarked on a 14-hour drive from Clinton to the greater Dallas area to watch five former LumberKings as they suited up for the Rangers in the first-ever World Series game played in the city of Arlington.

Colby Lewis delivers the first pitch of Game 3 to Andres Torres of the San Francisco Giants.

We were not disappointed, and neither was the record crowd of 54,000-plus.  Former Kings’ first-baseman Mitch Moreland ripped a three-run blast in the second inning, supporting nearly eight innings of solid work from right-hander Colby Lewis.  Former Kings’ right-hander Neftali Feliz then worked a perfect ninth inning to nail down the first-ever Rangers’ World Series win and his first postseason save.  The atmosphere was absolutely electric from the moment we got there to the moment we left.

I recorded some great video of Moreland’s home run, Feliz’s save and a few other things in between.  Enjoy.

Thanks again to our contacts with the Rangers for setting us up, we had a blast.  Too bad we couldn’t stick around for the other two games.  Let’s hope for a Ranger win tonight in Game 5 to send the series back to San Francisco!
