"strike" has five letters. it has six. i was figuring that out between innings. that's why i was a bad scrabble player. what can i say? >> joe: jay ground zero to short. four-letter word is o-u-the.

>> joe: there is that game summary again. 3-2, as we're in the seven. napoli tied it with a two-run shot in the fifth. allen craig. a go-ahead pitch, single in the first inning, first go-ahead rbi by a pinch hitter in the world series since the thrilling '96 series between the new york yankees, wade boggs was playing for and the atlanta braves. that is scott feldman who has been outstanding this post season. >> tim: 8-2/3 innings of work. only three hits and no runs. nine strike-outs. no walks. >> joe: right in the action to deal with albert pujols who has been hit by a pinch, intentionally walked. intentional walk heads off in fifth inning when holliday followed with a double-play
ball. strike-one. good ailing pitch. 93 from feldman. >> joe: gonzalez one third of an inning. the same for ogando. >> joe: one out, bases empty. seventh inning. good game. good pitch. strike two. top of the order will be at the plate for the rangers in the eighth. >> joe: ball two. octavio dotel will be on the mound for the cardinals.
>> joe: ball three. >> tim: if albert pujols goes out of the strike zone to swing, usually it's at a ball in the dirt. he won't chase away if it's sky high. or if he chases away, he'll make contact. >> joe: in to center. gentry slips but he recovers for out number two. it's got to be a great feeling to slip on n the world series, routine fly ball. >> tim: yeah, first chance. he made the play, recovering in time. recovering nicely. there is the slip. and the catch.
>> joe: they had to reed so the field. u2 was here in the summer. not as bad as texas, but pretty close. it was a scorching summer in st. louis. anything but tonight. 48-degrees. mist. windy. holliday, strike one. tied up. good pitch from feldman. holliday with a double there's the mist. two out and the bases empty. the 0-1. strike two. >> tim: those are two terrific pitches from scott feldman. the fastball in off the plate. and now the slider off the plate. i think matt holliday would like that pitch again. a slider away.
nope. yep. yep. something away. >> joe: two out, nobody on. the 0-2. napoli was asking him to bounce it. he wasn't asking him to throw it 58 feet. >> tim: that's what pitchers do. if you don't put down the right fingers, they throw one in the dirt. that is the splitter. and a good one. the reason it's a good one. it's a waist pitch. trying to get holliday to bite. he didn't. >> joe: now the 1-2. outside. 2-2.
>> joe: with the bases empty. holliday floats one to kinsler. and the inning is over. nice work by the texas bullpen in the seventh. we go in to the eighth. here in game one. it's been fun. good start to this series. st. louis up. 3-2. aaron, you're all set. great, thanks. mike, thanks for doing that discount double check. you saved us hundreds. what was that? the discount double check? it's when we comb through your policies and make sure that you're getting all the discounts you deserve. no, i get that part, but you guys are doing my move. the discount double check move? that's my touchdown dance. so you're a dancer? no, i'm a quarterback. oh, a quarterback. mrr. i'm a robot. mm, mm. ee, er, ee, er. get out of here. [ male announcer ] aaron rodgers got his. how about you? rodgers! discount double check! [ male announcer ] get to a better state. state farm.
>> joe: tim weisscot, honed his pitching skills with hall-of-famer johnny bench. bench will join other mlb legends on the pepsi max field of dreams team to play ball with tim and his friends in tim's hometown of columbus, ohio. how about that? >> tim: bench, the best catcher to ever play the game. that is my view. nobody else even close on both sides of the ball. >> joe: daniel descalso taking over at third for david freese. first up is ian kinsler, top of the order.
dotel has two hitters in his sights. he just took care of the first. [ applause ] one out. it's nice when you can come in a game, the first game of the world series. throw two sliders. that is the second one, the check swing. easy out for dotel. >> joe: the second hitter. you have the left-handed hitting hamilton on deck. that's why arthur rhodes, the left-hander is getting ready for cardinals in the bullpen. if hamilton gets on, back to the right-handed hitting, young. that's why lance lynn is getting loose. here is elvis andrus. strike one from dotel. it really wasn't talked about that much in the deal. at the end of july when the cardinals made that three-team trade. toronto and the white sox, but dotel brought a lot to this cardinal bullpen. experience and he has lightened the mood down there.
strike two. >> tim: 12 major league teams that ties ron velone, a left-handed pitcher and mike morgan a right-handed pitcher for the most teams for the major league. >> joe: all three pitched for the cardinals. >> tim: right. >> joe: here is an 0-2 pitch. got him on three straight. two out. [ applause ] a nice night's work for octavio dotel. >> tim: boy, i'll say. a slider for a strike. a check swing. and then three straight fastballs to get elvis andrus. >> joe: now the matchup. for arthur rhodes. 20th year in the big leagues. his first world series.

chevy cruze eco. for wherever life takes you. >> joe: arthur rhodes has one object objective here toni. that is to get josh hamilton. ken rosenthal is with us. ken, what is arthur rhodes doing in the dirt? >> ken: scrawling the initials of his late son jordon in the dirt. he lost his son jordan to age of five in indisclosed illness in 2008. he told me i'm going out there to play for my little boy. first one, his first world series is for him. >> joe: hamilton first up. against rhodes. two out, nobody out. dotel got the first two in the eighth. and arthur rhodes who started this season with the rangers, and now ends this season facing the rangers in the world series brings it home to his former teammate. just missed outside.
2-0. >> tim: in fact, arthur rhodes is being paid only $100,000 by the cardinals. and $1.1 million by the rangers. so he's pitching against the team that pays most of his salary. >> joe: here is a 2-0. off the hands. 2-1. and now motte the closer has replaced lance lynn with two-out in the inning. mike adams on the other side. if hamilton reaches, it will be motte. here is the 2-1. 3-1. on deck is michael young. rhodes was cut loose in august. the rangers. and john daniels made the additions to their bullpen. he was expendable. what does hamilton do on 3-1? he fouls it. a full count.
>> joe: hit it one-handed in to center. the cardinals bullpen in the eighth is up to the task. rhodes in his first experience in the world series gets hamilton. after dotel's good work to start the inning. bottom of the eighth. game one. cardinals bat, up 3-2.

he's on to start the eighth. infield hit. this is kell kelso coming up. the world series on fox is sponsored by -- >> tim: a fine play by ian kinsler. he couldn't get lance berkman. you've got to figure with don kellkelso up there, that -- danl descalso, i beg your pardon, that daniel will be up there to bunt. then what do you do with molina, punto and a pinch-hitter down the line. all sorts of thing turning for both men. >> joe: he does bunt at first. napoli makes a play. kinsler gets over in time.
one out. down to second is berkman for yadier molina. there is a night for molina. two ground-out, a stike-out. left-hander darren oliver just so you know getting loose for rangers in their pen. >> tim: he is getting ready for skip schumaker, who could be in the hole if he is the pinch hitter for arthur rhodes. a lot of wheels turning here in the eighth. >> joe: here is motte. getting ready for the ninth. molina. fouls it away. strike one. glad you're watching on fox. top of the hour.

he will work the wind-up. one ball, one strike. >> tim: with the advent of most relievers working from the stretch now, it is unusual to see a reliever who is working from the wind-up. a guy on third. a bit more of a chance to score on a wild pitch. >> joe: hits foul. that's strike two. greg gibson, the first base umpire. had to get out of the way to make the call. one ball, two strikes.

>> joe: the last team during world series play to come back trailing after eight innings to win game seven, the diamondbacks. to win the world series over the yankees, against rivas. strike one poured in from jason motte. as schumaker takes over in right for berkman. motte has been virtually unhittable. this post season. he makes the play. on young. rocket to first. one out. >> tim: get the radar gun out. the throw to first base in the low 90s. i mean he throws a seed to albert pujols.
>> joe: former catcher. he's got a great arm, obviously. can touch 99, maybe 100 on the radar gun. beltre. that's a foul ball. now they're not saying foul ball. out. the home plate umpire never made the call. right now they've got two outs on the board. >> tim: the famous play in 1969 world series. when earl weaver -- check it out. it sure looks like it hit his left foot. >> joe: the first replay looked like it missed him. >> tim: you know what, joe? a batter can't act that quickly. here it is on our unusual camera. it looked like -- i don't know. it did nick him.
it did. a hitter cannot react that quickly. if he feels the ball quickly, he doesn't run the ball out. if he doesn't run the ball out, to me that is the best evidence for umpire. if he didn't see it. obviously, it was not seen from the field. just off the left toes. but you can't go down like that. you are not doing an acting job. your job to get on first base. nobody can think that quickly. >> joe: take another look and see if there is anything that lights up. off the tip of the show. >> tim: right off the toes. it's out number two. >> joe: that is right. a big bat is gone for the rangers. now two outs.
one hitter -- >> tim: one hitter in the rangers line-up has two hits tonight. beg your pardon, ian kinsler also. one of the two just made an out. >> joe: here is a guy nobody could get out the las last out. wearing tiger uniform. nelson cruz. 1-1. six homers in that alcs. drove home 13 runs. cardinals are one out away from taking game one of the 2011 world series. the 1-1. ball two. motte didn't get his first save until 28th of august. cardinals went from one closer to the next, to the next, to the next. motte has the best stuff of all of them. strike two. >> tim: again, staying away
from cruz. >> joe: a season that started with a blown save, game one of the home opener. it's taken to the new closer around here. >> joe: outside. full count. >> tim: good call by jerry layne, the home plate umpire. >> joe: cruz trying to tie it with one swing. or just get napoli to the plate. who has homered tonight. 3-2 pitch. fouled straight back. what a rip by cruz. >> tim: what a rip, and
mistake. i think motte wanted to step away. came inside. you can see molina setting up a way, the ball drifting back to the middle of the plate. cruz misses. >> joe: chanting "let's go motte." >> joe: he throws a cutter, he throws a slider. nelson cruz the most feared hitter in the texas line-up right now. waits for the 3-2. and coming to get it to end the night is holliday. the cardinals win game one 3-2! [ cheers & applause ]
>> tim: the last pitch, 3-2. a cutter. just off the plate. and cruz hitting it on the end of the bat. to left center to give holliday a chance to drift under it. >> joe: and the cardinals who crashed the post season party and just will not go away. lead this world series one game to nothing. the best play of tonight's game brought to you by the audi a-8.
true greatness should never go unrecognized. just out of the reach of nelson cruz in right. the game winning pinch-hit single. for allen craig, and he is with ken rosenthal. ken? >> ken: thank you, joe. first and third, two out in the sixth. alexi ogando on the mound. tell me about the at-bat. >> player: he is tough. he came right at me with fastballs. i missed the first two. the last one i was trying to get the barrel on, the defense, make a play. and cruz made a great out. that was a great game all around. >> ken: what did you know about ogando coming in? how much video had you seen? >> player: a little bit. he confirmed that when i was in the box. he brings that up pretty good. he has great stuff. >> ken: talk about carpenter tonight and also the bullpen. >> player: carp, he does what he usually does. he was the leader out there tonight. went out there and threw strikes, got early outs. he led us tonight. great. >> ken: thank you very much. joe, back to you.
>> joe: thank you, ken. we'll take a break. we have more to come from st. louis. what a good start to this world series. game wise, well-played. tight. more like the regular season. better pitching. offense was down. in the end, the cardinals win it 3-2. take a break and come back after this.
series championship catcher a.j. pierzynski, i am chris rose. e.k., in the pre-game show, one thing we talked about was the chess match between ron washington and tony la russa, not only how they use the bullpen but the benches as well. >> eric: a great illustration, bottom of the sixth. tony la russa got in an opportunity to drive in a run with his ball club. got a runner out of base. got allen craig. this is your one shot. you are going against alexi ogando. he has thrown two fastballs, this one and a fastball. allen craig drives in the runner. la russa's one shot, goes for the big one. allen craig, pays off. now ron washington, top of the seventh. he has runners out there. and he pinch hits craig gentry. i get that. then next, esteban german. he hasn't had an at-bat since september 25. no at-bats in the post season and you have yorvit torrealba on the bench, 4-12 in the post season. experience. you are carrying three catchers. that was an opportunity for
ron washington to tie the ballgame. he wasn't able to do it. >> a.j.: you make great points about the bench. we talked about the bullpen and starting pitching and which would use the starting pitching. chris carpenter quality starts. six innings, two runs. we talked off-camera earlier, this was huge for the cardinals. why? they have their ace on the mound and he did it tonight. he was awesome. chris carpenter you stepped up big-time and got a win if the team and for the st. louis cardinals. tomorrow it's on jaime garcia to continue. if cardinals lose tonight, they are in serious trouble but they won. we'll have a great series now. >> chris: the bullpen was huge. five games came out of the pen. three scoreless innings, allowed one hit. a few moments ago, our ken rosenthal caught up with the new version of the beard in the 2011 playoffs, jason motte. >> ken: thanks. jason motte, first world series, first world series save. what was it like being out there on the mound? >> player: awesome and even better to get the win.
just good, the fans were behind me the whole time. hear them cheering and going. let's go cards. i'm saying get out there, mike. same thing, go out and make the pitches. that's what i tried to do. >> ken: now, the at-bat with beltre. did you hit him? >> player: you know what? i looked at the ball to see if i got the shoe or the scuff or something, all i had was different on it. it looked on the mound hoping it didn't have anything else on it. but handed it to the umpire and he said no. good for us. >> ken: in the nlcs you only had to protect a one-run lead in one of your games. tonight, very tense. what happened here tonight? >> player: i don't think we look at it different if it's one run or no runs, one run or however many runs. we go out there and the job is not let them score. job is get people out and not let them score. for me and the bullpen, it doesn't matter how many runs we're up by so hopefully we'll do it by three more. >> ken: you are hot, jason.
thank you. back to you. >> chris: thank you very much. not as scragglingly as brian wilson but as effective. nine innings in the post season allowed one hit, no runs. >> a.j.: is that the new thing? the closer -- >> eric: he is not the closer. >> a.j.: sorry. >> like you're going to hit fourth in the line-up but you're not the clean-up hitter. >> chris: look ahead 24 hours from now to the pitching matchup. colby lewis has been nails for the rangers the last two years in the playoffs. # 4-1, and er -- 4-1 rand era under 2.5 going against the left-hander jaime garcia. is this all on colby lewis? >> eric: it is and it isn't. he has given them the only quality start but more on the rangers offense. they have to put pressure on the st. louis cardinals. there with pressur -- there wasn'. they are taxing on the opposing team pitching staff. rangers have to be better offensively. >> chris: i agree.
>> it's on the rangers' offense. the pitching was great. three run against this line-u line-up. the cardinals dominated them. they tried in the first inning. molina throws him out stea stealing. then play, and carpenter makes unbelievable play to keep them offbase. from there, they didn't do much other than napoli's home run. they have to find a way to play their game and get on base, put pressure on st. louis to make their bullpen work. >> eric: you know, you mention at the top of the show. three and four hitters for the rangers, hamilton and young, 0-8 tonight. >> chris: anybody else's teeth chattering right now or just me? throw the coats on, see you again tomorrow night. coming up next, except on the west coast is your late local news. join us again tomorrow night for game two of the 2011 world series. right back here in st. louis. our coverage begins at 7:30 eastern. 6:30 pacific. pardon me, 4:30 pacific. only on fox. promotional consideration paid for by the following --
