World Series Game Two Recap
Wow. Just…wow. The Giants pummeled the Rangers tonight to a final score of 9-0. Matt Cain pitched 7.2 innings, allowing four hits, and striking out and walking two. He finished with a WPA of .468. Offensively, Edgar Renteria led the pack with a 2-4 showing, with a home run and a WPA of .131. His home run in the fifth with one out increased the Giants’ win expectancy from 53.5% to an astounding 69.7%.
That looks beautiful, doesn’t it? Also…not to get your hopes up, but according to Chris Jaffe, it looks like about 78% of all teams that have started 2-0 in the World Series have won it all. Just sayin’.
