Rangers win First Ever World Series Game
Ranger defeat Giants
ARLINGTON Click Here to follow "Rangers Baseball" back in Time(2010)   Down 2 games to none, the 2010 World Series moved from San Francisco to Arlington on this date in 2010. With aces Cliff Lee and C J Wilson already defeated by the Giants, it was up to Colby Lewis to come through for the rangers. Then, with two runners on base in the second inning, Mitch Moreland takes eight pitches before blasting a 3 run home run to right field, putting the Rangers ahead. And the Rangers never looked back, winning their first ever World Series game at home, behind the pitching arm of Colby Lewis. Colby Lewis was also responsible for the Ranger's only other home victories, both over the New York Yankees, eliminating their hopes of returning to the World Series for a second time in a row.
