ALCS Game 6 tidbits: Texas 15, Detroit 5
• Michael Young had two doubles in the third inning, becoming the first player in League Championship Series history with multiple extra-base hits in one inning. He also became the fourth player ever with multiple extra-base hits in a postseason inning, with the other three coming in the World Series and the last time coming from Jacoby Ellsbury in 2007.

• The five RBIs by Michael Young tied a club record for a postseason game. The other was Nelson Cruz in Game 2.

• The Rangers are the fifth team to score at least nine runs in an inning in a postseason game. The last team to do it was the Angels in 2002 ALCS against the Twins.

• The Tigers scored seven runs off of Derek Holland in two games, all of which were scored via the home run.

• The Rangers became the second team to win a best-of-seven series with relievers getting all of the team's wins, joining the 1997 Cleveland Indians, who did so in the ALCS.

• Nelson Cruz's six home runs and 13 RBIs in the series are both postseason records.

• Miguel Cabrera became the fifth player in Tigers history to hit two home runs in a postseason game.

• The Tigers hit 13 home runs in the ALCS. Ten of the 13 were solo homers.

• The 15 runs by Texas tied for most runs scored by a winning team in an elimination game. The other was the Braves' 15-0 win over the Cardinals in Game 7 of the 1996 NLCS.

• The Rangers are the first American League team to go to consecutive World Series since the Yankees went to four straight from 1998 through 2001.
