ST. LOUIS -- Three consecutive batters got on to start Game 6 of the World Series to give the Texas Rangers the early 1-0 lead off Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia.
Josh Hamilton drove in Ian Kinsler, who drew a five-pitch walk to start things off and advanced to third on Elvis Andrus' single.
The meat of the Rangers' order couldn't make it a bigger inning. Michael Young and Adrian Beltre both struck out with runners at the corners and Nelson Cruz grounded out to end the inning.
Colby Lewis, who pitched so well here in Game 2, takes the mound for the bottom half of the first.
