Texas Rangers Lose Their First World Series

After winning the ALCS finals on Game 6 against the New York Yankees, Texas clashed heads with the San Francisco Giants and ultimately fell short.

In Game 1 of the World Series, the Giants had a bit of “batting practice” on the Rangers, taking the win 11-7. Game two was no better as the Giants roared to a 9-0 victory.

Finally in Game 3, Texas was able to pull through with the Giants leading the series 2-1 as the Rangers came out on top 4-2.

But in game 4 the Giants came back 4-0, making Game 5 the final moment.

It was go hard or go home as Texas saw it, Game 5 went a whole 6 innings without either team scoring, it was full of great pitches from both sides with Cliff Lee leading Texas, and Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson leading the Giants. F

inally in the seventh inning, one mistake by Cliff Lee, and the Giants had a 3-0 lead on the Rangers. Three points was a virtually impossible lead to overcome with the pitching battle going on.

The game ended with the score board reading Home- 1 Away- 3. Texas lost its first, and hardest played World Series opportunity.
