Score and situation: The World Series is tied at two games apiece after left-hander Derek Holland(notes) and slugger Mike Napoli(notes) led the Texas Rangers to a 4-0 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night.
Leading lads: Holland overcame his mustache to pitch superbly over 8 1/3 innings, allowing two hits (both to Lance Berkman(notes)) and two walks while striking out seven. He pitched four shutouts during the regular season but gave way to closer Neftali Feliz(notes) after facing two batters in the ninth. They combined for the first World Series shutout since the White Sox beat the Astros 1-0 in Game 4 of '05.
