Game 1 goes to the Giants

Freddy Sanchez and the San Francisco Giants chased Cliff Lee early, roughing up the postseason ace for an 11-7 victory over the Texas Rangers in the World Series opener Wednesday night.
Tim Lincecum won the marquee matchup between Cy Young Award
winners, though neither pitcher was sharp. Lee entered 7-0 with a
1.26 ERA in eight postseason starts but allowed seven runs - six
earned - in 4 2-3 innings.
Sanchez doubled three times in the first five innings and
finished with three RBIs. The Giants knocked Lee out of the game
during a six-run fifth that was capped by Juan Uribe's three-run
homer off Darren O'Day.
San Francisco, which trailed 2-0, went ahead on Sanchez's
run-scoring double in the fifth and spoiled Texas' World Series
debut.
