Rangers BBTN: Elvis Andrus

The Texas Rangers lineup seems to take turns coming through in the clutch.

Nelson Cruz took had a couple big swings on Monday night in Arlington. Michael Young led off the grand-slam inning with a single to snap his 0-for-15 skid, but maybe a big game for him is coming soon. Maybe this will be the night for Elvis Andrus. He is 3-for-21 this postseason, but he did have a single and two walks in Game 2.

Andrus was the Warm-up Show guest on Rangers Baseball Tonight for Game 3 of the American League Championship Series, and he talked about making an adjustment at the plate from Game 1 to Game 2. Andrus is looking forward to Game 3 even though he is just a .224 career hitter in Detroit.

“It’s a huge field. If you hit a gap, there’s a chance for a triple, and that’s what I’m looking for in this series. It’s a pitcher’s field, but sometimes the ball carries well to left field. A lot of our guys feel good hitting here, and same with me,” Andrus said. “We really don’t think the pressure is on our side.”

How does the infield grass play at Comerica Park?

“Here is a little faster than home. Every field is faster than home. It feels good to hit and put pressure on the defense. A hard ground ball is going to get by the infield,” Andrus said. “On defense, we just have to be ready."

Andrus also talked about Miguel Cabrera, the Game 2 win, his approach at the plate and more. Listen to the podcast.
