World Series Game 1, Rangers Vs. Giants: Cliff Lee, Tim Lincecum Keep Fourth Scoreless

The Rangers scored a run in the first. They scored another run in the second. The Giants scored two in the third. For a matchup between Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum, this game was getting a little too interesting and a little too high-scoring.

So they got together, talked about it, and agreed to shape up in the fourth. We just said goodbye to our first scoreless full frame of the game. Lincecum was able to retire the side on three groundouts, working around a two-out double by Mitch Moreland. His pitch count stands at 59.

And Lee did Lincecum one better, picking up his first 1-2-3 inning of the game. Aubrey Huff hit a harmless pop out to short. Juan Uribe followed with a strikeout. And then Edgar Renteria hit another pop-up to end it. Lee's pitch count stands at 75.

Off to the fifth we go, all knotted up at 2-2. The Giants have to be happy about the way they've battled back against Lee and forced him to throw a lot of pitches. But they still have a long way to go.
