WS Game 2: Late rally evens series for Rangers.

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.

NFL News: You may have seen that Bengals’ holdout QB Carson Palmer was dealt to the Raiders for a pair of high draft picks.
