It's pretty much all or nothing when losing 5 at home in a tie series, and usually nothing.  It's probably better to fall behind 3-1, then win Game 5 to create momentum going back on the road (2003 Marlins, 1985 Royals).  It's not a surprise that history would show the importance of not going back on the road down 3-2, but it is a little surprising how rare it's been lately.  If the Rangers do lose Game 5 and win the final 2 in St. Louis, it would be truly history.
