SAN FRANCISCO -- Ian Kinsler came within inches of a home run in the top of the fifth. In the bottom of the fifth, Edger Renteria left no doubt.
He tattooed a C.J. Wilson fastball that came up and quickly left the yard for a 1-0 San Francisco Giants lead in Game 2 of the World Series. Wilson was sailing up until that mistake. The homer to left was just the Giants' third hit of the game.
In the top of the inning, Matt Cain, who has allowed just two hits, stranded Kinsler at second base after his lead-off double. Kinsler hit it about as far as he could without it going over the fence. The ball hit the top of the center-field wall and bounced back into play.
