Delino DeShields went 3-for-7 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored in Friday's victory over the Blue Jays.
He also stole a base for Texas. DeShields had three of 11 hits on the day for the Rangers, as they were able to take down the Jays in 14th innings despite getting next to nothing from the middle of their lineup all day. The former Rule 5 selection now has five hits in the first two games of the ALDS. It was Adrian Beltre's replacement, Hanser Alberto, who drove in the go-ahead run in extras.

Delino DeShields went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles, two runs scored and a steal in Thursday afternoon's win over the A's.

DeShields giveth and taketh away in this game, though the giveth outweighed the taketh. In the second inning, he hit an RBI single off A's starter Chris Bassitt. Just half-an-inning later, though, his fielding error allowed a run to score. Hope was not lost for the 23-year-old outfielder, as he redeemed himself with another RBI single in the sixth. He's been dealing with a bruised left knee of late, but maintains a season-long .261/.342/.376 triple-slash nonetheless. In addition to that batting line, he's also cracked two homers, driven in 34, scored 75 and swiped 24 bases.
