Cyber Monday Hockey Jerseys . -- The Texas Rangers took the first step Friday night toward what they hope will be a World Series championship when they clinched the American League West crown.One day after beating the Oakland As 3-0, the Rangers will try to zero in on their next goal, securing home-field advantage for the AL playoffs.Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish will face As rookie right-hander Raul Alcantara in the second game of the three-game series at the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday afternoon.Its important to start, no matter who youre playing, at home, Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre said. Obviously we went through a tough series with Toronto last year and we played the last game at their place. Sometimes when you play at your place its a little easier for you because you got the fans behind you and youre more familiar with the stadium you play in.Texas is 91-63, but Cleveland, which leads the AL Central by seven games, is 90-63. And Boston, which leads the East by 5 1/2 games, is 90-64.Its really important, said Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels, who pitched seven shutout innings for the win Friday. Theres a comfort knowing youre (playing) in front of your fans.

He struck out eight and walked four.In his past three starts, Darvish is 0-2 with a 7.47 ERA over 15 2/3 innings. He allowed 13 runs and 17 hits during that span while striking out 21 and walking eight.Alcantara will make his fourth career major league start and second straight against the Rangers in a rematch with Darvish.Alcantara allowed two run on five hits over 5 2/3 innings at Globe Life Park a week ago. He struck out three and walked none.I thought he pitched really well, As manager Bob Melvin said. Every time out he seems to get more and more comfortable, and more so last time than any. Were (on) a little bit of a pitch count with some of these guys and an innings count. Whether its him or (Jharel) Cotton, were not going to overextend them. But I thought pitching in that ballpark against that lineup and having the success he did was big for him.What was working well for Alcantara against the Rangers?Everything, Melvin said. The velocity on the heater was good, his secondary pitches were good. He kind of put everything together that maybe in his first two starts, certainly in his first start, wasnt there. We saw the last game what our development people have been saying about him.

Hall of Famer Allen Iverson says the practice of resting healthy star players during the regular season reflects a new age in the NBA and would have been a big problem between him and his coach when he played.Its different to me, said Iverson, speaking to ESPN before the broadcast of Friday nights Los Angeles Lakers-Philadelphia 76ers game. I never thought anything like that would happen. A guy like myself would compete night in and night out -- tired, hurt -- you know what I mean? It doesnt matter. But to each his own. If it helps those guys and helps their team, then so be it.The topic became a flashpoint earlier this week when LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love stayed behind in Cleveland as the?Cavaliers?traveled to Memphis for the second night of a home-and-road, back-to-back series against the Grizzlies.It would have been a big problem, said Iverson, who once gained notoriety for repeatedly asking why reporters were asking him about practice in a news conference -- to the tune of repeating practice dozens of times. It would have definitely been a big problem. We would have had it out. And hopefully I would have come out on top.Its a strategy San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich also has employed in recent seasons and something that Houston Rockets coach Mike DAntoni earlier this weekk called on the NBA to examine, saying it wasnt fair for fans who had spent time and money in an effort to see the rested stars play.

I knew youd want to see me, Iverson said.Iverson also earlier discussed the role of fashion in todays NBA during the ESPN interview. Iversons casual dress habits were widely regarded as the impetus for a once-enforced dress code that mandated players to wear suits in public.Listen, man. I cannot believe they changed the dress code for me -- and the stuff I see these guys walk into the arena wearing, Iverson said. Oh my god. You know what I mean? I just cant believe it. Now that I know they were picking on me. They had to be. Cause this is bad. Its bad, man. Its bad. ' ' '
