  • Game 2

    I usually like to come up with creative titles for my reviews, but I can't think of one. This was a terrific game for seven innings as both starters pitched excellently. C.J. Wilson made one mistake before being forced to leave with a blister on his pitching hand and the Texas bullpen came up with one of the worst relief efforts in World Series history. I don't know how you quantify that, but to give up seven runs, five hits, four walks (including two with the bases loaded) in two innings of work has to rank right up there.

    Matt Cain continues his incredible roll having now pitched 21 1/3 innings in the 2010 post-season without allowing an earned run. That's pretty amazing stuff. So is the Giants offense. They've scored 20 runs in two games after scoring 19 total against the Phillies in the six game NLCS.

    I was hoping for a competitive Series; it's not looking very good right now. Maybe Colby Lewis can give Texas a lift back home, like he did in Game 2 of the ALCS.moreless

      Texas 0 San Francisco 9
      San Francisco leads series 2-0

    • San Francisco's seven-run eighth established a World Series record for the most runs scored by one team in the eighth inning of a Series game. San Francisco also became the first team in World Series history to score seven runs in any inning after two were out and the bases empty.

    • Texas starter C.J. Wilson left the game in the seventh inning with a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand.

    • The National Anthem was sung by Grammy Award winning country music group Lady Antebellum.
      God Bless America was sung by U.S Army Specialist and combat veteran Kristin Day, who is with the Army's Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne).

    • The ceremonial first pitches were thrown out by Megan Armstrong and Nancy Mitchell, daughters of Giants' legend Bobby Thomson, who died on August 16 at the age of 86. Thomson is most famous for his home run that won the 1951 National League pennant for the New York Giants over the Brooklyn Dodgers. The three-run blast, known best as The Shot Heard Round the World, came off reliever Ralph Branca and erased a 4-2 Dodger lead.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • San Francisco Starter Matt Cain: You know, it's been feeling good. (Catcher) Buster (Posey) has done a great job of really pushing me to throw pitches in different counts, so I owe a ton of credit to him. But we've just been really trying to work ahead of the guys in every start I've had.

    • Texas Manager Ron Washington: I don't think we caught any breaks yet. We certainly don't feel like we're defeated. We're heading home. They took care of us in their ballpark, now we're headed to ours.
      (on the quality about his club that makes a comeback possible)
      Texas Manager Ron Washington: A day at a time, staying in the moment, but trusting each other and knowing there's more than one game to be played. It's a seven-game series. If you put too much emphasis on what happened the day before and not learn from it, then it can confuse you the next day. We're not confused.

    • San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: Now we're going in their ballpark. I'm sure they're going to have a sense of confidence. We've been road warriors, so that's what it's going to take right now.
      (on his starter Matt Cain)
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: I've said this before: He's probably been the most consistent pitcher really from Day 1. He's such a bulldog out there. He's taken charge, and he's the guy we want out there in a big game
