The aces of both staffs came out and did what they were supposed to do. CJ Wilson and Chris Carpenter each gave their team a chance to win. CJ Wilson’s effort wasn’t enough for the Texas Rangers as they lost game 1 of the World Series 3-2 to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Mike Naipoli hit a home run for the Rangers but an Allen Craig pinch hit single just out of the reach of Nelson Cruz in right field proved to be the difference.
Game 2 is Thursday night at 7:05 Central time. Colby Lewis will face off against Jaime Garcia.
