World Series Game 4: Jackson Holds Rangers In 2nd

No damage in the bottom of the second inning, but Edwin Jackson still doesn't seem to be fooling anyone (except Adrián Beltré).

With the bases loaded in the bottom of the first, David Murphy hit a fly ball to the warning track.

Leading off the bottom of the second, Mike Napoli hit a fly ball to the warning track.

Mitch Moreland drove a fliner into center for the second out.

Ian Kinsler lined a single to left-center.

And then Kinsler unaccountably got picked off first base to end the inning.

Generally speaking, what's happened in previous innings, believe it or not, doesn't have much predictive effect. But it sure doesn't seem like Jackson's a great bet to give Tony La Russa the five innings he's hoping for in Game 3.

So far so good, though. So after two full innings, it's Rangers 1, Cardinals 0.
