Ex-Twin Delmon Young out of playoffs

Tiger slugger and ex-Twin Delmon Young went hitless with three strikeouts in a 15-5 rout by the Texas Rangers in game six of the American League Championship Series.
Author:

The former Twin gained new life in Detroit after being traded from the Twins midway through the season.

Clutch hitting and rocketed home runs made Young a popular addition in Detroit and a valuable addition to their playoff roster.

Young was often criticized in Minnesota for not playing to his potential, and was considered a liability defensively.

The Texas Rangers are going to their second-straight World Series.
