Hey, a Mitch Moreland sighting!
Moreland's been awful for roughly four months and didn't do anything when given the start at first base in Game 4.
But Ron Washington sent him out there again in Game 5, and it paid off big.
With one out in the bottom of the second inning against Chris Carpenter, Moreland got ahead in the count 2-and-0. And then Carpenter threw a batting-practice fastball and Moreland did what big first basemen are supposed to do with BP fastballs ...
424 feet, and the Rangers were finally on the board.
Still, the Rangers have scored, they've hit a few balls hard, and suddenly Carpenter looks vincible.
Meanwhile, C.J. Wilson's settled down and it's Cardinals 2, Rangers 1 after three full innings.
