World Series Game 2: pregame


The Texas Rangers try to get even in World Series Game 2 on Thursday night after losing the opener to the San Francisco Giants, 11-7.

Texas sends C.J. Wilson to the mound to face the Giants' Matt Cain, with the Rangers hoping to split the first two games at AT&T Park before returning home for Game 3 of the Fall Classic.

The Rangers also made a couple of changes from their Game 1 lineup. David Murphy starts in left field and Nelson Cruz in right field in place of veteran Vladimir Guerrero, who's normally their designated hitter but played right field in the National League park on Wednesday night and made two errors.
