And we're back, after a necessary (but sad nonetheless) day off. The Series has shifted to the hitter-friendly Ballpark in Arlington. And with Jonathan Sanchez on the hill, that only increases the likelihood of home runs. Let's see if that happens.
Sadly, we only had the one home run. We'll see if the cold air tonight helps or hurts that. I'm looking forward to another exciting game, though. I do love World Series baseball.
Tonight's tater trots should be posted shortly after they occur in the game. Be sure to check back often. And follow me on Twitter for other thoughts about tonight's game.

Giants vs. Rangers
Mitch Moreland, Texas Rangers - 22.22 seconds (Season average: 22.38 seconds): And that is the Rangers' first home run of the Series. Moreland crushed that ball into the rightfield bleachers after a nice at-bat off of Sanchez. A pretty standard trot from Moreland.
Josh Hamilton, Texas Rangers - 19.48 seconds (Season average: 19.61 seconds): Well, we knew that one was coming too, didn't we? Hamilton was due. Nice, simple, quick trot from the MVP, too. And Sanchez is coming out...
Cody Ross, San Francisco Giants - 21.09 seconds (Season average: 21.96 seconds): You mean there are more home runs in a game in Texas? That's just crazy. Giants down 4-1 in the 7th.
Andres Torres, San Francisco Giants - 18.88 seconds (Season average: 18.87 seconds): An almost exactly average trot from Torres puts the Giants within two in the eighth. Colby Lewis might be losing it here...
