Predict the rest of this World Series. Do it, seriously do it. Predict it, then look up, down, over there, back at me, and find that this recap is now diamonds. I don't even know how to talk about this game. I expected one thing that happened in this game. Only one thing, and that was that Matt Cain would pitch a great baseball game, which he did.
He pitched seven and two-thirds innings, striking out two while walking two, allowing four hits while keeping his unearned runs streak intact, not allowing a single run, earned or unearned. The Giants picked up two runs while Cain was on the mound, something that doesn't really happen, no? Run support for Matt Cain? But the Giants hate that guy, don't they? Either way.
Juan Uribe drove in two for the Giants, including getting the seven-run eighth inning going. Edgar Renteria went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a solo home run.
C.J. Wilson wasn't terrible, but he wasn't sensational either, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks in six-plus innings for Texas, which had won five of its six road playoff games coming into its first Fall Classic. The Rangers were 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position.
The Giants hold a 2-0 series lead over the Rangers and now will head to Texas to get things going for game three. Jonathan Sanchez versus Colby Lewis is on tap for game three as it stands. Full recap coming soon.
