Mizzou in the Majors: Kinsler in the Post-season

Slices of Sox in Rangers (Boston Herald)
Kinsler and Pedroia are now two of the best second basemen in the American League. Even if they’re not particularly tight, Kinsler has no regrets.

“It worked out,” he said. “Everything turned out the way I wanted it to. I don’t know what would have happened if I had stayed there or gone to a different school. Everything happens for a reason, and now I’m here.”
Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz make post-season history (Lone Star Ball)
While Cliff Lee (deservedly) has gotten most of the attention, Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz also made history...

Kinsler and Cruz each homered three times in the series against the Rays.

In a post-season series that went five games or less, this is only the second time teammates have each hit at least three homers.

The other pair? A couple of Yankees you may have heard of...Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, in 1928...
