Starting pitching is coming up roses once again in the World Series, as Game 2 between the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers is scoreless through four innings.
The first hit in the game didn't come until the bottom of the third inning. With two outs, Rafael Furcal lined a double down the right field line off of Colby Lewis, but Jon Jay grounded out weakly to Michael Young to end the inning.
Texas finally had a rally in the top half of the fourth. Ian Kinsler walked to leadoff the inning, before Elvis Andrus flew out to right field and Josh Hamilton flew out to left. Young then guided a soft liner into centerfield for a hit, advancing Kinsler to third.
Jaime Garcia, though, would retire Adrian Beltre on strikes, ending the threat for Texas.
The Rangers will have Nelson Cruz, Mike Napoli and Craig Gentry due up in the top half of the fifth inning.
