Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Down to their last three outs, and in danger of dropping into a serious World Series deficit, the Texas Rangers rallied against St. Louis' vaunted bullpen for a 2-1 victory Thursday night.

Josh Hamilton and Michael Young hit sacrifice flies in the ninth inning to give Texas the win.

For the second straight night, Cardinals pinch-hitter Allen Craig greeted reliever Alexi Ogando with a go-ahead single. This time, Craig did it the seventh. In Game 1, his hit in the sixth sent the Cards to a 3-2 win.

The Rangers, however, were not done quite yet. Now, after a travel day, they will host Game 3 on Saturday night. Matt Harrison is set to start for the Rangers against Kyle Lohse.

Like Game 1, the Cardinals used five relievers on Thursday night, However, Dalton native Mitchell Boggs was not called from the bullpen. The former Catamount is still waiting to make his World Series debut.
