Rangers Comeback to Tie World Series 1-1
The Texas Rangers came back from down 1-0 against the St. Louis Cardinals to post 2 runs in the 9th inning and win 2-1. They tie up the World series at a game a piece.
The Rangers got 2 runs off of Jason Motte, who had been brilliant so far in this postseason. Motte gave up a bloop single to Ian Kinsler. Then, Kinsler stole second base. A single then by Elvis Andrus had runners on 2nd and 3rd with nobody out.
The big play was Elvis Andrus taking 2nd base on the throw that missed the cut-off man, which proved to be a costly run for the Cardinals. Josh Hamilton hit a sac fly to bring in Kinsler, then Michael Young came through for the Rangers to give his team the 2-1 lead.
Neftali Feliz came in to face the Cardinals in the bottom of the 9th for the save. He walked the leadoff batter but then struck out the next two and got Rafael Furcal to fly out to end the game and seal up the Rangers victory.
The series now shifts to the Ballpark in Arlington Texas as the Rangers and Cardinals will play game 3 on Saturday night.
