Rangers can't get runs across in sixth
SAN FRANCISCO -- The Texas Rangers failed to convert on a golden opportunity in the top of the sixth after Michael Young and Josh Hamilton both singled and took second and third on a wild pitch with one out.
Giants starter Matt Cain settled down and got Nelson Cruz to weakly pop out in foul territory and then Ian Kinsler, hoping to convert after missing a home run by inches in the fifth inning, sent a high pop into right field to kill the inning.
Cain allowed two hits for the first time in an inning and a Rangers baserunner advanced to third for the first time in the game, but the Giants held on to their 1-0 lead in Game 2 of the World Series.
