World Series Game 2 Score

Kinsler, Andrus Disaster In Texas :

ST. LOUIS - The Texas Rangers Ian Kinsler second baseman made a lot of things on a baseball field. But "hiding adjustment" is not among them. World Series Game 2 on Thursday night will be remembered as the ball game Vintage Kinsler. He contributed two singles and a walk in Texas '2 -1 victory in St. Louis, and if a big stolen base may be stored in the Rangers' season. His uniform, as always, was encrusted with dirt from the middle innings. Kinsler started a ground ball for an error, but offset by some fantastic cooperation cornerstone of shortstop Elvis Andrus. And provided some relief drawn as a runner on third base in the fourth inning, when a hot smash to teammate Adrian Beltre ricocheted off his shoulder in foul territory. Undaunted the coup, Kinsler looked back toward the batter's box and hit his hand on his shoulder, as if to wipe a few stray flakes of dandruff.
Some players are natural magnets for attention. As Boston Dustin Pedroia, Kinsler tackles each game, each with a bat, not all with the same fearless thought. If he messes up, it will still twice the next time the drive. This is part of its DNA baseball."It is a hot mess, man," Texas first baseman Michael Young said, laughing. "It really is."A hot what? "A hot mess," Young says. "It was all over the place. He finds a way to get in the middle of something all the time. "It 'a good lesson a lot of people. In this game you have to do is cut. Baseball is designed to spoil you in a while. And' too difficult to play. But it is enough to shake the stuff out and go hard. It ' fun to be on a team with a group of guys like this - going hard all the time. "

Rangers take account of director Ron Washington to give all there for the ninth inning with the first. Now they are linked to the World Series because they have never deviated from their mantra of aggressive play at any time, regardless of setbacks. They can thank their dynamic double play combination of Kinsler and Andrus to set the tone as the top-of-the-order catalyst. If the Rangers win again this series, which point to a rapid sequence of fire on Thursday as the turning point. It was noted at the time of Dave Roberts Kinsler own in October. When I download a single to center field to lead off the ninth against Cardinals closer Jason Motte, Kinsler had a great jump and beat the Cardinals Catcher Yadier Molina shot, the game's premier deterrence based stolen. He proceeded to third, Andrus to one and came across the score for Josh Hamilton's sacrifice fly. Andrus, who was on guard was second base to launch from the city center fielder Jon Jay, scored on Young's sacrifice fly to give Rangers lead. Then came Naphtali Feliz nailed down in the ninth, the crowd and sent home 47 288 shocked and disappointed. Score one for persistence. When Kinsler was cut with Molina in attempted theft base in the first inning of Game 1 on Wednesday, I gave a rare glimpse of a failure on the bases. A stolen base rate of success of 80 percent is considered very good. Kinsler, with 136 steals in 158 career attempts, or 86 percent. Carlos Beltran (87.7 percent) is better, but it is the player that is rare.

From late April to late September this year, Kinsler has managed to steal 28 bases in a row to set a franchise record. To a man, his teammates credit his success to his ability to dissect and skill moves with pitchers pick up points - it is a necessity because it is safer not to follow a star.

"I do not think it's that fast," said Andrus, "but it intelligently. He is always watching the video and pay attention to every little thing." In fact, Kinsler seems to account for its ability to steal the right to establish an effective without the high speed, like a badge."We talked about it," outfielder Nelson Cruz said. "He said he is not so fast." In the middle infield, success is a double-play combination more a reflection of athleticism, instincts and anticipation. In its first three years with the Rangers, Kinsler has developed an impressive synergy with young people up to the East. Then in 2009, he had to learn to bond with Andrus, who came from the organization in Atlanta in a trade for Mark Teixeira.

In Game 2, Kinsler and Andrus made their mark with a pair of stellar defensive plays. In the fourth, Kinsler made a catch with bare hands and pivot rapidly rotating double an amazing game. A round later, Andrus topped with one of the most amazing defensive players in the World Series in recent memory: It was until the middle to a diving stop on Rafael Furcal and deflected the ball to second base on a safe distance with his glove. In a way, he arrived at second base in perfect harmony with a sprint for Kinsler forceout.

"He can not do better than that," Kinsler said. "That is, the game was ridiculous."
Andrus shows exceptional maturity of 23 years, but acknowledged that he was not swinging the bat very well in this postseason. She points to .196 in 46 at-bats in October, but said he had to keep separate their offensive problems of defense, as well glovework can be as critical to the success of a team at the time of the year. He was the one pressing the plate at times this month? Well, 'yes. This usually happens when you're a human being. "There are a lot of things can happen, especially the World Series," Andrus said. "Do you want to do it right. You want to get base hits. Do you want to do everything, and forgets to relax and make good contact. This is what I did last time-bat. I took a big breath and went out and made a good contact and I did the job. "
After making his massive work, the Rangers are now more flexible, much more lively. Having missed the worst of cases, swept the Busch Stadium, winning a division in place, will return home to Texas this weekend to play before an audience of support, in accordance with rules of the American League and ready for a statement. The Cardinals should be careful or you might end in the middle of a hot mess in Arlington.
