SAN FRANCISCO -- Hits have been hard to come by for the Texas Rangers off Matt Cain and for the second time they've left a runner stranded on second base.

In Kinsler led off the top of the fifth with a deep shot to center that came inches from giving the Rangers a 1-0 lead. It hit off the top of the wall and bounced back into play for a double. That's where Kinsler would stay as David Murphy and Matt Treanor failed to move him over.

The Giants then turned to National League strategy, intentionally walking eight-hole hitter Mitch Moreland to get to pitcher C.J. Wilson. Wilson made contact, sending a chopper to first, but Aubrey Huff handled it and ended the inning to keep Game 2 tied at 0-0.
