Better late than never.
Texas scored two in the top of the ninth to win Game 2 and even up the series.
Until they did, it appeared as if Allen Craig might be the “Dusty Rhodes” of this WS.
In 1954, key pinch-hits by Rhodes in the first two games sparked the N.Y. Giants to a sweep of Cleveland. Craig’s PH RBI single was the game winner in Game One, and in Game Two, Craig’s 7th inning PH RBI single broke a scoreless tie.
But Texas won it with two in the 9th. Remember how many times I say you’d kill for a SF? Texas got two of those to win the game. Down 1-0 and facing a two games to none deficit, the Rangers got singles by Kinsler, who stole second, and Andrus. While Kinsler was held at third on Andrus’ single, Andrus took second on a missed catch error by Pujols. A SF by Hamilton moved up both runners and tied the game. Young’s SF game the Rangers the lead and the game.
