Hey! The Rangers showed up last night!
Rangers Ballpark has always been known as a launching pad. Last night, Texas used a pair of homers, a three-run shot from Mitch Moreland (who started the year in Triple-A) and a solo shot from Josh Hamilton, to get back into the series and win the first World Series game ever by a team from Texas.
If they can win behind Tommy Hunter tonight against the Giants' Madison Bumgarner, it becomes a best-of-three. If not, the Giants could wrap it up Monday night. I picked the Giants in seven before this began; it appears the Rangers want to make a series of it, so I'm sticking with that. Tonight's game time has been set a bit later -- evidently, so that all of Fox's NFL games will be over before it starts.
7:20 pm CDT, Fox: Giants at Rangers. Giants lead series 2-1. Announcers: Joe Buck and Tim McCarver.
