World Series Game 2: Rangers at Cardinals

The Rangers are trying to pull even before the World Series shifts to Texas. In tonight’s Game 2, the Cardinals are going with the young lefty Jaime Garcia against the Rangers well-traveled veteran Colby Lewis. A few quick notes:

• Last night’s Game 1 was the 11th one-run game of this postseason. That’s one short of the record set in 1995, 1997 and 2003. Last year’s playoffs included only eight one-run games.

• Two-thirds of all televisions that were turned on in St. Louis last night were tuned into the World Series (a 66 share). In Dallas-Fort Worth, the game drew a 51 share.

• Country singer Trace Adkins is singing the National Anthem.

• For whatever it’s worth, I enjoyed Tyler Kepner’s story on Tony LaRussa’s desire to make sure all of his active players get in a box score during the World Series. Would you want Joe Girardi to go out of his way to make sure all of his guys got into a World Series game?

• Weird story of the day: Apparently the guy who caught Gaddafi was wearing a Yankees hat.

• Significant story of the day: Josh Hamilton is nowhere near 100 percent and says he would be on the disabled list if this were the regular season.
