Matt Cain pitched seven shutout innings as Edgar Renteria notched two hits and three RBI’s to lead their San Francisco Giants past the Texas Rangers in Game 2 of the World Series yesterday at AT&T Park. Renteria scored first with a solo shot to left in the fifth inning. The score was 2-0 heading into the 7th when the Giants batted around for an additional seven runs. “We’ve put ourselves in a good situation,” said Cain. “We’ve just got to take that confidence and some of the good approaches that we’ve had into these last two games and take them down to Texas with us.”
Rangers Ballpark is scheduled to host the next three games starting Saturday at 7:00 PM. The Rangers look forward to their turn at home advantage and remain optimistic despite their recent struggles. “We certainly don’t feel like we’re defeated. We’re heading home,” said manager Ron Washington. “They took care of us in their ballpark; now we’re headed to ours.” Texas will send Tommy Hunter to the mound for Game 3 to go against Giants lefty Madison Bumgarner.
