The Texas Rangers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-0 on Wednesday night at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona to win the first World Series in the franchise’s history. The Rangers won the best-of-seven series 4-1.
“It’s a total team effort to win a World Series,” Rangers starting pitcher Max Scherzer exclaimed after his team’s victory. “It’s never one guy.” The team put in a mammoth effort to not only win the World Series but recover from a devastating season in 2021 when they lost 102 games.
After losing eight consecutive games in August and six of its first seven games in September, the Rangers were able to clinch a wild-card berth. From there, they found their form, winning seven consecutive playoff games to overcome the Tampa Bay Rays, Baltimore Orioles, and defending champions Houston Astros en route to the World Series.
