Texas rallies for 2 in 9th, wins 2-1 to tie Series
Neftali Feliz closed it out, and Rangers win 2-1 thanks to a two-run rally in the ninth inning against the St. Louis bullpen. World Series tied at one game apiece, with Game 3 on Saturday night in Texas.
The Rangers used aggressive baserunning by Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus to set up their rally against closer Jason Motte in the ninth. Josh Hamilton tied it with a sacrifice fly against Arthur Rhodes. Michael Young put Texas ahead with a sac fly against Lance Lynn.
Feliz is on in the bottom of the ninth to try to close it out for the Rangers and tie the Series at one game apiece.
The hitters coming off the bench for Texas look really rusty. Most of them haven’t had much action lately, and that’s hurting the Rangers so far in the World Series.
We’ve seen this before.
Allen Craig came through against Alexi Ogando again, delivering a pinch-hit single in the seventh inning that gave St. Louis a 1-0 lead in Game 2 on Thursday night.
But when Garcia’s spot came up in the bottom of the seventh, the Cardinals had runners at first and third with two outs. So manager Tony La Russa pulled Garcia for Craig, and Washington went to Ogando.
Same matchup as Game 1, when Craig’s pinch-hit single to right off Ogando broke a tie and sent the Cardinals to a 3-2 victory.
