Cardinals slip by Texas, 3-2 to take 1-0 lead in World Series

Post  Admin on Thu Oct 20, 2011 12:42 pm

The St. Louis Cardinals rode six strong innings from Chris Carpenter, along with another stifling bullpen effort and a pair of run-scoring singles to a win in Game 1 of the World Series, 3-2, over the Texas Rangers at Busch Stadium.

The team winning Game 1 of the Fall Classic has gone on to win the series 66 out of 106 times in the history of the event. The last 10 teams to win Game 1 at home have gone on to be World Series champions.

St. Louis manager Tony La Russa used 17 of his 25 players, including five relievers.

Game 2 is Thursday night, with Jaime Garcia starting for the Cardinals against the Rangers' Colby Lewis. The last time Texas lost two straight games was during the last week of August.
