ARLINGTON -- The Rangers gave catcher Bengie Molina the start against the Yankees in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series. He doesn't seem worried that the Yankees are ahead in the series.
"I think the [Rangers] are very loose. They enjoy the game," Molina said. "And this group right here, they forget things real quick. They don't get rattled by anything, from what I've seen. They are very good at it. I'm probably the worst one of them, but they are awesome at that. I think we are going to be fine."
This is Molina's fourth postseason of his career. The previous three were with the Angels. It was as a member of the Angels that he saw his team down 1-0 in the 2002 AL Division Series to the Yankees. The Angels won that series in five games and went on to win the World Series.
"I think it helps you out in your mind, it helps you out just knowing you can do it," Molina said. "Is it going to happen? Who knows? But at least you know that can happen and you go out with the mentality of playing every day, like, 'Let's win today and forget about what's going on [yesterday] or the next day.' I think that's the mentality we are going to have -- just try to win today."
