World Series Game 5 update: Giants, Rangers still no score after sixth inning


The Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants remained locked in a scoreless World Series Game 5 after six innings Monday night at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Texas got a leadoff single from Mitch Moreland against Giants starter Tim Lincecum. But Elvis Andrus and Michael Young flied out and Josh Hamilton grounded out.

Freddy Sanchez hit a two-out single in the top of the inning when right fielder Nelson Cruz couldn't handle his shallow fly ball despite a diving try. Buster Posey then slammed a ball deep to right-center field that Cruz caught at the base of the wall.
