Cardinals Vs. Rangers Score Update: Cardinals Lead 2-0 In The 2nd Inning

The St. Louis Cardinals are off to a good start in Game 5 of the 2011 World Series. With a little help from the Texas defense, they're up 2-0 in the second inning.

St. Louis outfielder Matt Holliday walked to begin the top half of the inning, then advanced to second base on a pitch in the dirt that got away from Texas catcher Mike Napoli. After a Lance Berkman walk and a David Freese flyout, Yadier Molina singled to left field, scoring Holliday. Texas left fielder David Murphy caught an untimely case of the bobbles as he fielded the Molina hit, but probably wouldn't have had time to throw out Holliday regardless.

Skip Schumaker followed the Molina single with a routine ground ball to Texas first baseman Mitch Morland, but Morland was unable to field the ball cleanly, and there was no throw home as Lance Berkman scored the Cardinals' second run.
