World Series 2011 Game 5 Preview: Start Time, TV Schedule And More

The St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers continue their series at the Ballpark in Arlington for Game 5 of the World Series—here's the start time, the starters, and a single dab of context.

Oct 24, 2011- For the first time since 2003, the World Series is all tied up after the first four games. The Texas Rangers were able to rebound from a Game 3 loss thanks to a dominant  pitching performance from Derek Holland. The lefty pitched 8 1/3 innings of shutout baseball to help lead the Rangers to a 4-0 win over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals. Game 5 will see the Cardinals send Chris Carpenter to the mound, while the Rangers will start C.J. Wilson. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM CDT on Fox.

After seeing Edwin Jackson walk seven batters in just 5 1/3 innings, St. Louis skipper Tony La Russa will look to Carpenter to deliver another steady postseason performance. Although he wasn't at his best in Game 1, Carpenter pitched six innings and allowed two runs to help the Cardinals open the 2011 World Series with a victory.
