Rangers Vs. Cardinals Game 7 Score: All Tied At Two After First Inning

The Texas Rangers are got off to a hot start in the top of the first inning by putting up three hits and two runs off of St. Louis Cardinals starter Chris Carpenter. Carpenter also struck out one batter and walked another in the top of the first. This is Carpenter's third start in the World Series and so far he received a no decision in Game 1 and got the win in Game 5 of this World Series, and durring his two starts has allowed 11 hits and four runs in 13 innings.

The first four batter for Texas got on base by way of a single, walk, double and a double. Josh Hamilton and Michael Young hit the two doubles and each drove in one batter apiece to put the Rangers up in the top of the first.

Matt Harrison took the mound for the Texas Rangers and in the bottom of the first and after recording two outs and then he wisely decided to walk Albert Pujols and then Lance Berkman was walked to put runners on the first and second. Then up came David Freese who lined a double to left center field and drove in both Pujos and Berkman to tie the game at two runs apiece.

Then a big scare came when Yadier Molina hit a ball to deep center field, but ultimately was caught at the warning track to record the third out. In the Rangers bullpen they had  C.J. Wilson warming up.
