The Giants turn to their ace in the first chance to close out the World Series. Lincecum's stats weren't glittering in his Game 1 start -- 5 2/3 innings and four earned runs -- but he earned the victory. Do it again, and the Giants are champions.
Trying to stave off elimination, the Rangers send Lee to the hill with the hope that he bounces back from a rough outing in Game 1. Lee allowed seven runs on eight hits, and he was saddled with his first career postseason defeat after seven wins.
