Live blog - World Series Game 5

I'll be running a live blog for World Series Game 5 commenting as things happen.

Feel free to leave comments below.

8:13 p.m. -- We're through one inning at the Ballpark in Arlington. Goose eggs so far.

8:14 p.m. -- Lee's curveball is much sharper tonight than Game 1. Solid bite.

8:18 p.m. -- After falling behind 3-0, Lee battles back to get Burrell to line out to LF'er David Murphy. Through one and one half innings, the score remains 0-0.

8:27 p.m. -- Apparently both teams think it's best to swing early and often against Lee and Lincecum tonight. Can't say I blame them.

8:38 p.m. -- Lincecum no longer perfect. Walk to Moreland.

8:39 p.m. -- Andrus whiffs to end the third. Through three, still 0-0.

8:50 p.m. -- Lee gets through the fourth inning unscathed after a lengthy battle with Posey. Rangers are still looking for their first hit of the night.

9:04 p.m. -- Huff with a high chopper to Kinsler, perfect throw but Moreland drops it for the error. Could be a huge break for the Giants.

9:09 p.m. -- 6-4-3, Lee gets Renteria to ground softly into the inning ending double play. The error on Moreland ends up not hurting the Rangers.

9:14 p.m. -- For a catcher, you'd expect Molina to have better strike zone judgement than he has. Two terrible at-bats for Bengie. 0-0 through five innings.

9:18 p.m. -- Rowand has the most uncomfortable batting stance I've ever seen. My knees would be shot if I tried standing like that for any length of time.

9:29 p.m. -- Lincecum isn't "The Freak", he's a machine.

9:36 p.m. -- Lee getting into some trouble with back to back singles from Cody Ross and Juan Uribe. Two men on, no outs.

9:44 p.m. -- I really don't like Edgar Renteria. First the Indians in 1997, now a three run home run off Lee tonight. 3-0 Giants as we go to the Bottom of the 7th.

9:52 p.m. -- Life in Texas, yet? Cruz takes Lincecum deep to make it Giants 3 - Rangers 1. Rally Claw time?

9:55 p.m. -- Lincecum looks a bit rattled after the Cruz home run. Just walked Kinsler. David Murphy is stepping to the plate.

9:57 p.m. -- Murphy K's on a huge pitch from Timmy. This kid can pitch.

10:09 p.m. -- Neftali Feliz is now pitching for the Rangers and works around a two out single to hold the Giants at bay. Heading into the Bottom of the Eighth, Giants 3 - Rangers 1.

10:15 p.m. -- Three outs to go for the Giants to wrap up the World Series. Lee was good, Lincecum has been fantastic.

10:22 p.m. -- Feliz gets Burrell to strike out to end the Top of the Ninth. Three more outs till the Giants with the World Series, or, we head on to Game Six in San Francisco.

10:25 p.m. -- On comes Mr. Fake Beard, Brian Wilson. Fastball/Slider guy. Nasty pitcher, nasty beard.

10:27 p.m. -- Fastball down the middle for strike three on Hamilton. Two outs to go for the Giants to win the World Series.

10:28 p.m. -- Make that one out to go.

10:29 p.m. -- Fastball at 96 MPH. One strike left.

10:30 p.m. -- There it is! On an inside slider on a 3-2 count, Wilson gets Cruz swinging for the Giants first World Series since 1954. Congratulations San Francisco Giants, you've earned it!

Thanks for taking the time to read my live blog.
