Before last night, I would not have predicted that Juan Uribe would be your 2010 World Series Game 1 MVP. His three run homerun in the bottom of the 5th inning all but sealed the deal for the Giants, who would go on to outlast the Texas Rangers by a final score of 11-7. Cliff Lee wasn’t good (too much time off?), giving up 6 earned runs over 4.2 innings. Tim Lincecum wasn’t much better but was saved by the Giant offensive explosion.
Heading into the series, everyone wondered whether or not the Giants would be able to score enough runs to beat the Rangers and Cliff Lee. Well, if last night was any indication, San Fran is more than up to the challenge. Are people surprised by how easy the Giants made it look against Lee? Did anyone else fall asleep before the game ended at 11:30? Share your views.
