continue on a base hit by berkman. >> tim: i don't think kinsler had a good jump on this ball. he may not have seen it off the bat and it goes under his glove. the ball hit very hard . >> joe: when this series resumes after a travel day tomorrow, saturday night it will be matt harrison, the hard-throwing left-hander, against kyle lohse. then holland and edwin jackson in game four. that's the plan as of right now. ball one, just low to matt holliday. that is saturday night right hear on fox on the air at 7:30 eastern, 4:30 pacific.
>> tim: what a riveting game. >> joe: two of them. >> tim: yep. >> joe: berkman with a small lead. berkman, two steals during the regular season. was caught six times. he was 2 for 8. he's 2 for 2 this postseason. stays put. just low again. 2-0. remember freese is out of there for defensive reasons and descalso is on deck.
on the outside corner. good pitch. 2-2 >> tim: you hear that expression a lot, perfect pitch. nobody is going to hit that pitch. nobody. ball 3 and berkman will get a head start at first. >> tim: that's why that 2-2 pitch with two outs and the runner at first is the key pitch because if the pitcher misses, then the runner at first is running on the play and he can score on a short double, long single.
>> joe: there goes berkman on ball 4. second time holliday has walked tonight and mike maddux will come out and talk, maybe go over the scouting report on daniel descalso, who so far this postseason is 1 for 6. >> tim: i think, joe, as much or more than a scouting report, i think a pitching coach would go to a pitcher in this situation and say stick with your strength. for instance, if mike adams is a low ball pitcher and the hitter is a low-ball hitter, go with your low pitch, go with your sinker, go with your slider. stick with your strength, even though it might be the hitter's strength. but remember all the
time that he is a defensive replacement and if he was that good a hitter, he would have started tonight. >> joe: descalso did have a knack for having some big hits early in the season. he is up there with two on, two out, trying to add to a 1-0 eighth inning lead. a hit and a walk with two outs. strike 1. big swing by descalso. the cardinals came in with a disadvantage
matching the two bullpens. they came into this world series with an advantage with their bench. >> tim: no question. >> joe: with players like schumaker, who was the regular second baseman during the regular season. theriot, who was the starting shortstop everyday for the first half. allen craig, we know what he can do. and descalso can play all over. two on, two out. to the right side. kinsler makes the pickup and a nice play to make the inning. that sets it up. jason motte is getting ready for the top of the order. kinsler, andrus, hamilton coming up. st. louis up by one. ♪

[ both laugh ] [ old spice whistle ] >> joe: skip schumaker takes over in right for berkman so the cardinals add to their defense. schumaker bats ninth. and jason motte takes over. top of the order. ian kinsler spins away from ball 1 inside.
the cardinals, who are playing in their 18th world series, are playing in their 107th postseason game in franchise history. they have never been involved in a 1-0 game. as that fastball hits the inside corner. it's a 1-1 count. >> tim: again, good work by rzepczysnki. >> joe: strike 2. jason motte has got his first save. they had a revolving door safer in st. louis this year. he's been 14 of 15 since that day. >> tim: a small solace to ranger hit hears jason -- hitters that jason
motte does not have an off-speed pitch. so far he doesn't need one. >> joe: that's ball 2. the 2-2. off the end of the bat, into shallow left. out goes furcal and it's a base hit! good start to this ninth inning for texas. kinsler is on base for the third consecutive time. >> tim: joe, this is where you get burned with that no-doubles defense. normally if the outfielders were playing normal depth, holliday catches this ball. but at no doubles defense, the outfielders play about five steps deeper than they normally would and that allows for a hit like this. >> joe: tieing run is on with nobody out. and now we will see
how the rangers want to play it with elvis andrus at the plate. the bunt, takes the ball. >> tim: normally when you are on the road you don't bunt to tie. however, the rangers' bullpen has been so good during the postseason, that's why ron washington has opted to bunt. and if kinsler can score, they will tie the game. >> joe: elvis andrus, 0 for 3 tonight. 0 for 6 in this world series. there's a strike. neftali feliz, the closer, darren oliver
getting loose for texas in their pen. arthur rhodes gets loose. there goes kinsler! the throw by molina. safe! and kinsler with a huge stolen base for the rangers! >> tim: furcal with a huge jump. he had a big stolen base against detroit in the lcs and a huge jump, a great pitch for yadier molina to handle. slide to go the outside of the bag, furcal with that sweet tag, and kinsler is in there. >> joe: and a good call by ron kulp, the second base umpire. >> tim: right. molina did what what he could. he had a good pitch to handle. and that transfer was perfect, but too good
a jump for kinsler, knowing that most short relievers do not have good moves to first base. just in there! >> joe: runner at second. the tieing run, nobody out here in the ninth. and it's still 1-2 on elvis andrus. elvis drove home 60 runs during the regular season. josh hamilton on deck. inside. 2-2. remember, if this game goes to extra innings, cardinals have a
couple big bats no longer in their lineup, freese and berkman. >> tim: tony la russa just moving center fielders jon jay about three steps into right center field. >> joe: that's foul. >> tim: think about skip schumaker, he's a defensive replacement. hard to know as a defensive replacement, the first time you have played these hitters, you have to know exactly where you should be in the outfield. >> joe: you think he's deep, don't you? >> tim: i do. and i think he should be over to the right line more. i think andrus will hit to the right field. >> joe: in the air to center, a base hit.
they will hold kinsler at third. and down to second on that throw is andrus. nobody out! second and third and elvis andrus with the biggest hit of this series! >> tim: that should be an error on albert pujols, because he actually kicked the ball. the relay throw, jon jay. again, that's why la russa moved him into right center. the ball hits the glove of pujols barely, i believe. yes. and the throw by molina to second. great base running by andrus. takes a wide turn, continues when he saw the ball get through. and now second and third and nobody out for the rangers. >> joe: they call it a straight single. they have not put an error on the end of that play. it's second and third, nobody out. >> tim: excuse me,
joe. i think it's an error only because pujols diverted the throw. great hitting by andrus. kinsler with nobody out. i think that ball is just off the glove of pujols and had the ball not been off his glove, i think molina has a clear shot at andrus at second base. >> joe: odd that pujols would miss that all together. >> tim: well, that's true. >> joe: second and third, nobody out. hamilton at the plate. here's a guy, josh hamilton, who is 0 for 7 in this world series last year's american league mvp, playing with a sore left groin, and tony la russa is going to come out of the dugout and may make a change right here. he has rhodes in the bullpen for a reason. >> tim: to pitch to one-hitter, and that's
hamilton. >> joe: but he has not made the call to the pen yet. >> tim: the alternative would be to walk hamilton. go from the strikeout on michael young. now i think tony is going to allow the home plate umpire to come out to the mound and make him make the move or leave motte in there. >> joe: and he's going to go to rhodes. >> tim: right. >> joe: so motte is knocked out on a base hit by kinsler, a stolen base. and then elvis andrus with a huge hit into right center, took second on the throw, and the rangers are in business here in the ninth. rhodes coming in.

>> joe: here is arthur rhodes, who has put together these numbers over six games. he's got one job, but so does josh hamilton. hamilton's job is to tie it or give the rangers their first lead of the night. and he rips one into right. that will tie the ballgame. tagging and scoring is kinsler. the throw to third too late. it's a 1-1 game with the go-ahead run at third. one out on a sac fly by josh hamilton. now with michael young coming up, we should have yet another pitching change. >> tim: after a visit to the mound by
molina. hamilton does two things with one swing. he drives in the tieing run and moves the go-ahead run to third base with one out. but that shows you the importance of the cut-off man, albert pujols, on that throw from center fielder jon jay in allowing elvis andrus to get to second base. >> joe: now elvis is 90 feet away. lance lynn coming in. michael young coming up. what a game here in game two!
for tony la russa. he strained his left oblique. he was on a 60-day dl which expired right before the nlcs started. that was inside. he thought his season was over. instead the cardinals advance, take on milwaukee, and lynn became a part of the bullpen. >> tim: lance missing the last 46 games of the regular season. >> joe: he's behind on the count to michael young. this could put the rangers on top. it's 3-0 with beltre on deck. back-to-back hits by kinsler and andrus. a big stolen base in there by ian kinsler. good base running by andrus in this inning. the 3-0. it's on the outside corner. he hasn't given michael young a good fastball yet. >> tim: a 3-0 slider
for a strike. >> joe: young, 1 for 3 tonight. 7 rbis this postseason. it's a full count. here is the 3-2. and a fly ball into right center field is going to put texas on top for the first time tonight! young delivers a sac fly and it's 2-1, rangers in the ninth. and elvis andrus, with a big ninth inning here for the rangers.
>> tim: you talked about the kinsler stolen base. the excellent base running by andrus, and texas takes its first lead of the world series. >> joe: that means that oliver sits down in the bullpen and neftali feliz gets loose. slider misses down away. the cardinals will have molina, punto and schumaker in the bottom of this inning. >> tim: michael young could not have hit that slider for a sac fly without looking for it. >> joe: that's the third. descalso makes the play. that sends game two into the bottom of the ninth inning. the rangers come up with their first runs. the night. they are charged to motte. the cardinals bat, and they trail by 1. who stood up and helped raise re than four million dollars for stand up to cancer, just by using your mastercard.

>> joe: neftali feliz will try and save it, end this night and send this world series, one game a piece, back to texas. >> tim: this will give you an idea perhaps of what albert pujols was thinking when ian kinsler rounded the bag at third base. watch the third-base coach, dave anderson, go up with the hand. kinsler, however, runs through the bag as though he was going to score. i think perhaps pujols's attention was diverted and he touched the ball enough to where molina did not have a clean shot of andrus at second base. and that was the key to scoring two runs in that inning and not one. >> joe: andrus with good base running. >> tim: excellent. >> joe: and he scored on the sac fly by michael young. now yadier molina starting the bottom of the ninth.
ball one high for feliz, who hits 100 on the radar gun. we talked to ron washington, the manager of the rangers, before the game about the lay off of feliz and how he has done with a few days off. he said i expect him to be right in the strike zone. something he's been better with the last month of the season. he's behind, 2-0. molina with a career high 14 home runs during the regular season. takes ball 3 outside. molina will take on 3-0. 3-1.
punto will follow and then schumaker. 2-1, texas. and a leadoff walk handed out by feliz. >> tim: now do you pinch-run ryan theriot and get yourself down to one catcher? i think the answer to that is gerald laird, who is a fast runner for a catcher. so tony la russa does not waste a run by using terror, and then if they do tie it, having laird come in for defense. punto obviously will be trying to bunt. >> joe: cardinals have only theriot left on their bench.
tieing run at first with nobody out. and that bunt is back to the backstop. strike 1. upper 90s fastball exploding out of the hands of feliz. that can't be fun to try to turnaround and bunt. >> tim: what you have to try to do is to hold the bat at the top of the strike zone and don't try to bunt it unless the ball is under the bat. if you do, you will pop it up. i know they are telling him, make him be down in the strike zone. >> joe: gerald laird, the tieing run at first, nobody out and an 0-1 count on nick punto, who has two
>> joe: and i don't believe feliz threw punto a strike in that at-bat. >> tim: good point. three high fastballs. maybe the second pitch was down and up, but i don't think so. probably outside. >> joe: and now schumaker's first at-bat. hit .283 during the regular season, two homers. that's foul. way high. 98. a ball and a strike. schumaker batting in the number nine spot.
furcal on deck. pujols missed that throw from jay. that allowed the go-ahead run to get into scoring position. the 1-1. 98. ball 2. >> tim: it's pretty clear that the cardinal hitters, to make good contact against feliz, the ball has got to be down in the strike zone. he will get a fastball, but if it's up, you are just not going to get on top of it. >> joe: here's the 2-1. late swing and a miss. 2-2.
>> tim: a better pitch to hit. feliz, a tough, tough assignment. >> joe: only 23 years old. the 2-2. fouled back to the screen. a 99-mile-per-hour fastball. the rangers here tonight are trying to become the first team, since the 2001 diamondbacks, to come back and win a world series game when trailing after eight. they did that in game seven against mariano mariano rivera. there's out number 2. back-to-back strike-out after the walk. it will be up to rafael furcal. >> tim: what a play by mike napoli. we talked about a low fastball.
i'll tell you, that ball gets by a lot of catchers. even though you are expecting the fastball, you don't know how hard it's going to be. >> joe: cardinals are down to their final out. the cardinals have had only one walk-off world series win in franchise history. they play in their 18th. the rangers with two in the ninth. sac flies by hamilton and young. furcal, strike 1. >> joe: furcal, in 50 games in the regular season when he came to the cardinals hit seven home runs. he's done that and one more in the postseason. here's the 0-1. strike 2 and a big
swing by furcal. now feliz is one strike away from striking out the side. >> tim: that's how hitters get in the hole against feliz. those foul balls are strikes obviously. they make contact, but rarely hard. >> joe: here's the 0-2. the pitcher of record is motte. on the other side, mike adams. time called by furcal. >> tim: sometimes the catcher will encourage his pitcher to shake just for effect. he's thrown so many fastballs in a row, he wants the hitter to think he's going to throw something else.
>> joe: inside. 2-2. and now the next. furcal hits it in the air to right. here is nelson cruz. and a come-back win for the texas rangers, as they tie this best-of-seven series at a game a piece! feliz gets the save, and the rangers win the battle of the ball pens here tonight. motte suffers the loss, and mike adams, a pickup from san diego at the deadline, gets the win for the texas rangers.
>> tim: joe, we talked so much about these rangers during the lcs and the world series being the complete team. ten years ago all the rangers could do was hit. but now they can run the bases. and what a weapon that was tonight. just brilliant base running by ian kinsler and elvis andrus, coupled with what they did defensively. >> joe: they have really played well up the middle all night. >> tim: oh, man. >> joe: and then combined with their bats and their legs to get ron washington a win in this world series. the best plays of tonight's game brought to you by the audi. true greatness should never go unrecognized. and that keystone combination of kinsler and andrus, combined to get the win on sac flies by hamilton and
michael young. a final of 2-1. let's go down to the field and ken rosenthal. >> ken: thanks, joe. josh, last night arthur rhodes got you on a 3-2 slider. what was your approach against him tonight when you got the go ahead sac fly to tie the game. >> even if it wasn't him, it was not try to do too much. second and third, no outs. you don't try to do too much. you try to put the barrel on the ball and get it off the end a little bit and knock it in the sweet spot. >> ken: you guys were three outs away from going down 2-1 in this series. how difficult would of that been had that happened? >> it would have been hard but we would have been comfortable going back to our place having three games. but they are just like we are, never say die until the last out is made so it makes it fun. >> you told me before the game you were trying not to use your legs as much. how did that work out and how much are you looking forward to the warmer weather? >> it was off and on. first couple bats i
did what i want to. the other at-bat i tried to hit it a file and then the last at-bat it was just take the hands to the ball and absolutely looking forward to warmer weather. >> ken: josh, thank you very much. >> thanks. >> ken: joe, back to you. >> joe: he's a great spokesperson for the rangers organization, as is the other guy, the man who got the game-winning rbi, michael young. here's your final in game two. cardinals stranded nine runners tonight, and texas gets the win. the chevy post-game coming up next.
>> welcome to the pest game show on fox. it took the rangers 18 games to get their first win in the world series. it was worth it. hi, alongside eric karros and a.j. pierzynski, i'm chris rose. we talked about the magical moves in the postseason series. when he took jays motte out in the ninth you about jumped out of your chair >> a.j.: i was surprised. i know he said he's not your closer, but he is your closer and you pretty much made him the closer in the postseason. he was 5 for 5. you take the guy out, josh hamilton, second and third, but you risk losing jason motte not only for this world series but for this year and possibly down the line. you have to be careful. tony knows his guys better than you do but you have to watch that and be very, very careful, especially with a young guy in that situation >> eric: i was surprise the because
jason motte throws the ball so hard. and bats have not been productive. he almost looks like he's defensive because he's not feeling well. here he gets an arthur rhodes ball up in the air. what does he do in sac fly out to right field and makes contact n that situation you are look for a strikeout and that's why you have jason motte in there. michael young, 3-2 slider, a sacrifice fly. if you would have told the texas rangers that your three and four hitters would go 1 for 14 with two sacrifice flies, and you get out of here with one win in two games, they would say we'll take it all day. that's what they did tonight. they stole this game from the st. louis cardinals. >> chris: it half a tough season for michael young. a few moments ago our ken rosenthal caught up with him. >> ken: here with michael young. michael, take me through the at-bat. you didn't know much about lance. you told me you didn't know much about the cardinals. what was that like. >> he throw me hooks
early on, the 3-0 hook. at that important i tried to be as disciplined as i could in the zone with the open bag and one out. wasn't sure they wanted a fresh at-bat. my only goal was to get something deep enough to score a run. >> you are a former shortstop. you saw andrus both in the field, at-bat and on the bases. what kind of game did he play. >> the play on furcal areas ball was incredible. that was a momentum shift for us and kept it locked up. for us to go out there and have the at bat he had off a good closer just shows us what kind of player elvis is. >> ken: going back home, the series is tied now. how much is difference is it knowing you have one in your belt? >> obviously you want to win every game you play in the postseason. for us to come back in the ninth and win the ballgame is huge for us. back home, we know what our ballpark is like with 50,000 people. it goes crazy in the postseason. we look forward to the environment. >> chris: quickly a
look ahead >> a.j.: texas going back home right where they want to be. they get the d.h. and i'm not sure that will favor them. but as i said at the beginning, athleticism will be the difference in this series. the rangers showed it tonight >> eric: i think the most interesting point is how is matt harrison going to respond in the postseason and in the world series and how is kyle lohse going to respond. kyle lohse has struggled against the rangers in his whole career. we will see if he can bounce back for the world series. >> chris: you talked about the pitching match-up. a pair of 14-game winners from the regular season. harrison has been very solid. the rangers love playing behind them. they have won 15 of his last 17 starts. by the way, when ken rosenthal was talking to josh hamilton, he said you you are look forward to getting into the warm weather. hamilton is not the only guy. you ready to get on the plane and head to arlington? >> a.j.: i think my teeth ever chattering. >> chris: you played in chicago. it's not that bad >> a.j.: well, i'm looking at you.

unifying government she said. gadhafi was hated for atrocities between his own people but he is loss blamed for the bombing of pan-am flight 103. audrey barnes spoke with two local mothers who's children were killed when that plane came down in scotland. >> they were just 20 years old when they were killed on pan am flight 103. both said the man behind the terrorist act was long overdue. >> she were coming home for christmas. >> reporter: they had picked up their son nicklasson december 21, 1988. he was one of 35 syracuse university students studying abroad and headed home when moammar gadhafi drove it out of
