Cliff Lee was humanized in last night’s 11-7 drubbing by the Giants in game one of the World Series. For those of you who thought the Giants making it were a fluke, you got silenced.
Juan Uribe put the game way out of reach, hitting a three-run homer to cap-off a six-run fifth inning that gave San Fran an 8-2 lead.
Lee gave up seven runs, six earned, in only 4 2/3 innings. He was chased after giving up three runs in the fifth with two of Uribe’s three RBIs off his homer being credited to Lee. It snapped Lee’s seven-game winning streak in the post season.
Do the Giants really have what it takes to beat the Rangers, who were seemingly favored in this World Series?
