BOWLING GREEN, KY (AP) -- Former major league pitcher Paul Kilgus has split loyalties for the 2011 World Series.

Kilgus, a Bowling Green native, debuted in the major leagues in 1987 with the Texas Rangers, but finished his career six years later with the St. Louis Cardinals.

As the Rangers and Cardinals set to face off in Game 4 of the series Sunday night, Kilgus couldn't decide who he preferred for the series.

Kilgus told The Daily News in Bowling Green that the late season run put on by the Cardinals was impressive, but he also likes Nolan Ryan, a Hall of Fame pitcher and now the president and CEO of the Rangers.

Kilgus, a 43rd round pick by Texas in 1984, finished his career with a 21-38 record and 4.51 ERA.
