  • Great Game!

    Well, it looks like we have a Series, although I think Ron Washington badly mismanaged his bullpen but got away with it. How can you not have your closer ready to pitch with two out in the eighth? He had to go with Darren O'Day because Neftali Feliz didn't start warming up in time. I also thought leaving Colby Lewis in to face Freddy Sanchez after Andres Torres homered was dicey, but he got away with that too thanks to a terrific catch of a screaming line drive by left fielder Nelson Cruz.

    Washington has left himself open to these questions throughout the Series. He will likely win the Manager of the Year award, but he's been poor in the Series, and I don't think the Rangers will get lucky again in future games.

    I still think the Giants will win, but I was hoping for a longer Series. If Texas can win tomorrow, I will get my wish.

    I've enjoyed the FOX coverage with Joe and Tim, except for the in-game advertising and the random shots of tense fans. The former strikes me as classless (the NFL bans it) and the latter takes away from the focus, which should be on the game. Also, how many times do we have to see Nolan Ryan?moreless

    • At 22 years, 5 months of age, Texas closer Neftali Feliz becomes the second-youngest pitcher to save a World Series game. The youngest was Bob Welch of the Los Angeles Dodgers who saved Game 2 of the 1978 Series against the New York Yankees at age 21. Feliz overtook current Rangers President Nolan Ryan for second place. Ryan was 22 years, 9 months old when he saved Game 3 of the 1969 Series for the New York Mets against the Baltimore Orioles.

    • The ceremonial first pitch was thrown out by Hall of Famer and current Rangers President Nolan Ryan. The catcher was Ivan 'Pudge' Rodriguez of the Washington Nationals. Rodriguez played for Texas from 1991 to 2002.
      The National Anthem was sung by Fort Worth native Kelly Clarkson.
      God Bless America was sung by Martha Plimpton, star of the FOX comedy series Raising Hope.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (on their first World Series victory)
      Texas Second Baseman Ian Kinsler: When we win, it's the real Rangers. When we lose, it's the fake version.
      Texas Third Baseman Michael Young: That was fun. That was great. That was the atmosphere we envisioned for the World Series.
      Texas Shortstop Elvis Andrus: This means a lot. We knew this game was really important in getting us back into the World Series. Tonight was great, a first step toward winning the World Series.
      Texas Right Fielder Jeff Francoeur: This is a great win for us. This is how we've been winning in the postseason - get the big hit early, get our crowd into it and have pitching do the rest. We knew we had to have it, but we were relaxed and had a well-played game.

    • Texas Starter Colby Lewis: It's an awesome, awesome feeling to think that many people come out to see me and see the Rangers play. I get goosebumps thinking about it right now.
      Texas Starter Colby Lewis: If you go out and pound the strike zone early, it opens up a lot of doors. I think it's a situation where you can get ahead early and throw the pitches you want to late. You see it with all the great pitchers, with (Philadelphia's Roy) Halladay and all those guys getting ahead early. You saw it with C.J. (Wilson) in San Francisco.
      Texas Starter Colby Lewis: Tonight, I threw a lot of sliders. My breaking ball worked well. Basically that was it.

    • (on his left fielder Pat Burrell, who struck out four times)
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: You know, his timing is off probably a little bit, which happens. You know, he's a big reason why we're here, with the huge hits he's gotten. Sure, you hope he comes out of it, and it was a tough night for him. But he can handle it. The one thing about Pat, sometimes he doesn't get a big hit, but he's getting big walks, things like that, to find a way to get on base. But he's a little bit off with his timing.
      (on Texas starter Colby Lewis)
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: He pitched well, hit his spots, mixed it up. He's a pitcher, and he's had a good year. He's pitched very well in this post season, and he took it out there tonight and did a good job for them.
      (on Texas closer Neftali Feliz)
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: He had great stuff. I mean, he hadn't pitched in a while, and he had good command, too. It was an impressive outing for him. You've got a guy out there throwing 98, 99 with command, the kid did a great job.

    • San Francisco Right Fielder Cody Ross: It's always a dogfight. It was a dogfight before the beginning of this game. We just have to keep grinding. It takes some wind out of your sails. But we have to keep fighting, doing what we did the first couple of games. Tonight, they put the pressure on us and we couldn't answer.
