Texas Rangers drop Game 5, Lose First World Series

Reported by: Charlie Bartlett

San Francisco Giants win the 2010 World Series.

Monday night, the Texas Rangers were defeated 3-1 in Game 5 of the World Series at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Game 5 started out like we expected, a pitchers dual between Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum. Lee was perfect with 6 strikeouts, but then up to bat was Edgar Renteria. Top of the 7th, Renteria bombed a two-run shot to left field giving the Giants a 3-0 lead.

But the Rangers kept fighting. Nelson Cruz answered with a solo shot in the bottom of the 7th, putting Texas behind two runs, but it just wasn't enough to make a comeback.

Giants closer Brian Wilson closed out the Major League Baseball season striking out Nelson Cruz for the Game 5 win and the World Series Championship. The Giants first title since 1954.

Despite the loss, the Texas Rangers still had a season to remember; one of their bests ever. On their road to baseball's biggest stage, they accomplished a lot in just one year.

They won the AL West Division Title, they beat the AL East Champion Tampa Bays in the ALDS, then they conquered the New York Yankees in the ALCS on their way to their 1st World Series in franchise history.
