Rangers shutout in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Matt Cain pitched shutout ball into the
eighth inning, Edgar Renteria hit a go-ahead home run and the San
Francisco Giants broke away from the Texas Rangers 9-0 on Thursday
night for a 2-0 lead in the World Series.
A day after the Giants romped 11-7, Cain ruled the mound. He
kept his 0.00 ERA through three postseason starts.
The Giants scored seven runs in the eighth, their biggest
postseason inning ever. Texas relievers walked four straight
batters with two outs.
Renteria homered off C.J. Wilson in the fifth inning for a 1-0
lead. He added a two-run single in the wild eighth. By the end, the
crowd chanted "Sweep! Sweep!"
Game 3 is Saturday night at Texas, with Colby Lewis starting for
the Rangers against Jonathan Sanchez.
