World Series Cardinals Vs. Rangers Score: Scoreless Still Through Six

Pitching is still the name of the game in the 2011 World Series. Game 2 is scoreless through six innings between the Cardinals and Rangers, as both Colby Lewis and Jaime Garcia have been brilliant.

Each team has only been able to muster up two hits. Ian Kinsler has reached twice for the Rangers, as he's walked and singled. The Rangers did have a rally going in the fourth, as a Michael Young single advanced Kinsler to third with two outs. Adrian Beltre struck out to end the winning, and Texas' rally. 

Texas' defense has been spectacular as well, as Elvis Andrus robbed Rafael Furcal in the bottom half of the fifth inning, saving a hit and a run, and ending the inning in the process. With runners on first and second and two out, Furcal hit a hard grounder up the middle, but Andrus ranged to his left, dove, made a sensational stop and then flipped the ball to Kinsler from his glove perfectly, forcing Jaime Garcia at second and ending the inning.

Lewis has thrown 86 pitches through six innings, allowing just two hits and two walks. He's struck out three batters on the night. 

Ron Washington does have some bullpen activity, though, as Alexi Ogando was seen warming in Texas' bullpen.
