American Baseball Championship

The San Franciso Giants won the first game of the World Series of baseball, 11-7, against the Texas Rangers.

(NYTimes) “The Texas Rangers’ Cliff Lee, one of the most dominant postseason pitchers in recent memory, faced Tim Lincecum, a two-time National League Cy Young Award winner, in the most-hyped playoff pitching matchup . . . But this pitchers’ duel fizzled as Lee was knocked out in the fifth inning after giving up seven runs . . .”

If the Giants win this series, it will be the first time they have ever won a World Series. (What other major league baseball team has that distinction?)
