The Texas Rangers earned a much needed win at home over the San Francisco Giants 4-2 on Saturday night. And in a rare occurrence in World Series history all of the runs in the game were scored by home runs, two for each team, with Mitch Moreland’s three run second inning blast being the difference in the game.
Colby Lewis was sharp on the mound for the Rangers, only giving up two solo home runs and earning six strikeouts. Darren O’Day came on in relief in the eighth inning and the Giants had a scoring opportunity, but O’Day reached deep and came up with the out. Rocket-armed Neftali Feliz closed out the ninth for Texas.
