World Series 2011 Game 2 Preview: Start Time, TV Schedule And More

The St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers meet for Game 2 of the World Series—here's the start time, the starters, and a single dab of context.

The St. Louis Cardinals will look to earn yet another Happy Flight—and a 2-0 lead going into three games at the Ballpark in Arlington—when they meet the Texas Rangers for Game 2 of the 2011 World Series at Busch Stadium. Game 2 starts, at least ostensibly, at 7:05 PM CDT on FOX.

The Cardinals won Game 1 by a score of 3-2, thanks to their first quality start since Game 5 of the NLDS, perpetrated as usual by Chris Carpenter, and a pinch-hit single from Allen Craig that scored postseason hero and NLCS MVP David Freese. (They also got two RBI from the usual suspects when Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday, and Lance Berkman keyed a rally—those runs came in handy when Mike Napoli obliterated a Carpenter pitch in the next half-inning to tie things up at two.)

For Game 2 the Cardinals will send Jaime Garcia out to the mound—for the sake of his admittedly dubious home/road splits—against Colby Lewis, the Rangers' command artist and ex-NPB-ace. It's a good matchup for the Cardinals, and a win could turn them into the surprise favorites.
