World Series Game 2: Giants rout Rangers, 9-0, to take a 2-0 lead
Giants reliever and former Dodger Guillermo Mota threw a scoreless ninth inning and San Francisco routed the Rangers, 9-0, to take a two-games-to-none lead in the best-of-seven series.
San Francisco won with Matt Cain's brilliant pitching, key hits by Edgar Renteria and Aaron Rowand and with a meltdown in the Texas bullpen that led to a seven-run eighth inning for the Giants.
The Giants hope to win their first World Series since the team played in New York in 1954.
Game 3 of the series is Saturday in Arlington, Texas, at 3:30 p.m. Pacific time.
