Garcia, Lewis off to strong starts in Game 2
Question of the Day
Texas put runners on first and third with two outs in the fourth inning, but Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia got out of it. He fell behind 3-1 on Adrian Beltre, then came back to get a swinging strikeout.
Beltre pulled a grounder foul past third base and the ball hit teammate Ian Kinsler on the shoulder. After hitting the deck, Kinsler got up and flashed a smile at Beltre, brushing off his shoulder as if to say, “That was nothing.”
By the way, Joe Buck sure likes to celebrate his fellow Fox broadcasters, Tim McCarver and Ken Rosenthal, on the air. Compliments from Buck flying all over the booth during the fourth inning.
Nothing like a little self-promotion.
Still scoreless in a fast-paced game.
The starting pitchers looked real sharp early in Game 2.
Hamilton appears pretty uncomfortable with that groin injury. He’s really having a hard time finding his swing.
The 25-year-old Garcia shows no fear, attacking Texas’ right-handed sluggers on both sides of the plate.
One of the reasons Garcia got this start is because he has been better at home than on the road this season. He sure looks poised at Busch Stadium so far in his first World Series start. But sometimes when he starts to fade, it happens quickly.
Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis also is in control, with the exception of a second-inning walk to Matt Holliday and a two-out double by Rafael Furcal in the third.
Lewis is not a big name, but he’s been awfully effective for Texas in the postseason the past two years, going 4-1 with a 2.37 ERA in six starts.
No score after three innings.
