Some quick notes after a second stunning result in San Francisco:

* The Rangers became the first team to walk four consecutive batters in a World Series game.

* The Giants have scored 20 runs in the first two games. They scored a total of 19 in six NLCS games against the Phillies, and the Rangers gave up a total of 19 in six ALCS games against the Yankees.

* The Giants have scored six-plus runs in an inning twice in two games. They did that five times the entire regular season.

* All 20 of the Giants' runs have come with two outs.

* Edgar Renteria drove in three runs in Game 2, something he didn't do the entire regular season.

* After two World Series appearances, Mark Lowe's ERA is 67.50.

Best lines of the night on Twitter as the mess was unfolding:

@mikeoz: Henceforth, Derek Holland will be known as "Walker, Texas Ranger."

@Ledger_Yankees: Taco Bell originally wanted Ron Washington in its commercial, but he refused to bring Feliz in, even after the kid ate his 15th chalupa.

Amazing stats from S.F.

By my count, just 13 of the 20 runs the Giants have scored have come with 2 outs. Not sure where CBS Sports came up with all 20 coming on 2 outs. If you don't believe me, come watch the games recorded on my DVR. I'm planning to watch them again anyway. Over and over again.

Go Giants!! Two down. Two to go!!
