Scenes from Game 3 of the World Series
Myself, along with our General Manager Ted Tornow and Assistant GM Nate Kreinbrink embarked on a 14-hour drive from Clinton to the greater Dallas area to watch five former LumberKings as they suited up for the Rangers in the first-ever World Series game played in the city of Arlington.
The Giants and Rangers lined up for the National Anthem, sung by Kelly Clarkson.
Colby Lewis delivers the first pitch of Game 3 to Andres Torres of the San Francisco Giants.
We were not disappointed, and neither was the record crowd of 54,000-plus. Former Kings’ first-baseman Mitch Moreland ripped a three-run blast in the second inning, supporting nearly eight innings of solid work from right-hander Colby Lewis. Former Kings’ right-hander Neftali Feliz then worked a perfect ninth inning to nail down the first-ever Rangers’ World Series win and his first postseason save. The atmosphere was absolutely electric from the moment we got there to the moment we left.
I recorded some great video of Moreland’s home run, Feliz’s save and a few other things in between. Enjoy.
Thanks again to our contacts with the Rangers for setting us up, we had a blast. Too bad we couldn’t stick around for the other two games. Let’s hope for a Ranger win tonight in Game 5 to send the series back to San Francisco!
