World Series Game 1, Rangers Vs. Giants: Cliff Lee Helps Own Cause In Second

The Rangers pushed a run across in the top of the first, and Cliff Lee worked around a double in the bottom half to keep the score 1-0. Lee then came out and helped his own cause in a second inning that saw the Rangers add another.

Leading off against Tim Lincecum, Bengie Molina lined a base hit the other way into right field. Mitch Moreland followed with a strikeout, bringing Lee to the plate, but after fouling a bunt off, Lee decided to swing away and drilled a fastball over the outer half into the left-center gap. The ball split Pat Burrell and Andres Torres, who had been playing shallow, and Lee wound up on second with a double. Molina advanced to third.

Elvis Andrus stepped in next and lifted a fly ball into moderate center field. Molina, of course, doesn't run very well, but he was nevertheless able to tag up and score on the fly, as Torres' throw home sailed well offline. Lee advanced to third, but was stranded there.

It's 2-0 Rangers going into the bottom of the second, and already, the Giants are up against it.
