By on Oct 28, 2010 in Baseball, Sports Comments

Filipino-American Tim Lencecum played a key role in the San Francisco Giants World Series Game 1 win over the Texas Rangers. The Giants beat the Rangers, 11-7, and is now on the right track for its first ever World Series crown since 1954. Lencecum retired 13 of 14 batters in one stretch, negating the 4 of 8 hits he allowed.

The second game of the best-of-seven World Series final will be played on Thursday (Friday in Manila).

The Giants took an early lead with Juan Uribe‘s home run, and Freddy Sanchez‘s 4-for-5 with three doubles. Rangers‘ left handed pitcher Cliff Lee took home a disappointing first career post-season defeat. Lee also allowed seven-of-eight runs in 4 2/3 innings. During the fifth inning, the Giants made six runs to take an 8-2 lead over the Rangers.

Four errors by the Rangers helped the Giants to rattle 14 hits in the game.
