Last Saturday going into Game 3 of the 2011 World Series, the Texas Rangers were riding high.  After losing Game 1 in frustrating fashion, 3-2, they were able to come back in Game 2 and beat the Cardinals at their own National League-style game, 2-1.

And then Game 3 happened.

Albert Pujols had gone 0-7 combined in the first two games. In Game 3 Pujols heated up to nuclear levels.  He went 5-6 with 6 RBI, with a World Series record-tying three home runs.  

Next thing you knew, the Rangers had lost by nine runs for the second time in the postseason this year, and the first time since Game 1 of the ALDS against the Tampa Bay Rays

Derek Holland needed to pitch the game of his life, and as will be discussed later on, he certainly would have a superlative start.

The Texas Rangers have only been to the postseason five times in the history of the franchise: 1996, 1998–99, 2010 and of course, this year. 

Here's a look at the top postseason pitching performances in the history of the Texas Rangers.

Enjoy.
