Aces End Up Jokers

Well, so much for the highly anticipated pitching duel between Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum. They gave up 16 hits and 10 earned runs, neither making it through the sixth, as the Giants romped 11-7 in the opening clash of the 2010 World Series.

Freddy Sanchez was one hitting hero; he went 4-for-5 with 3 RBI and 3 doubles off of Lee; Juan Uribe was the other, launching a three-run homer to help ice the contest in the sixth.

A game for the ages it wasn't; there were 25 hits and six errors banged out during the course of the evening. CJ Wilson and Matt Cain will try to restore some order tomorrow.
