Ian Kinsler Sparks 9th Inning Rally for Rangers in World Series Game 2
by Mizuno USA on October 21, 2011
Mizuno Brand Ambassador Ian Kinsler started the rally for the Texas Rangers in the top of the ninth inning in Game 2 of the 2011 World Series. Trailing the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 entering the inning, Kinsler led off with a bloop single into shallow left field, then stole second to get into scoring position. Kinsler would eventually score the first run of the game for Texas on a sacrifice fly, and then watched from the dugout as his teammates tacked on another run to take a 2-1 lead. The Rangers held on for the win over the Cardinals, and tied the series at 1-1. The World Series now shifts to Texas for games 3, 4, and 5. Kinsler plays with the Mizuno Pro Limited GMP41 Ball Glove, wears custom 9-Spike Vintage G6 Cleats and 5 inch Mizuno Wristbands, uses the Global Elite Batting Gloves, and swings the Mizuno Pro Maple MZM243 Bat.
