World Series Rangers Vs. Cardinals Score: Josh Hamilton's Sac Fly Ties Game In Ninth

It took the Rangers eight plus innings, but they're finally on the board in Game 2 of the World Series. 

Trailing 1-0 into the ninth against St. Louis closer Jason Motte, Ian Kinsler led off the inning with a bloop single. Kinsler then stole second base off of Motte, as Motte allowed a massive jump to Kinsler, and even a perfect throw from Yadier Molina wasn't enough to catch Kinsler stealing.

Elvis Andrus then singled into center field, with an errant throw from Jon Jay allowing Andrus to advance to second.

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa then went to Arthur Rhodes to face Josh Hamilton, who hit a sacrifice fly, tying the game at 1-1. Andrus advanced to third on the play, putting the winning run just 90 feet away from scoring.

Michael Young and Adrian Beltre will face off against Lance Lynn for St. Louis.
