Sanchez, Giants Chase Lee in 11-7 Win Over Texas
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Freddy Sanchez and the San Francisco Giants chased Cliff Lee early, roughing up the postseason ace for an 11-7 victory over the Texas Rangers in the World Series opener Wednesday night.

Tim Lincecum won the marquee matchup between Cy Young Award winners, though neither pitcher was sharp. Lee entered 7-0 with a 1.26 ERA in eight postseason starts but allowed seven runs, six earned, in 4 2-3 innings.

Sanchez doubled three times in the first five innings and finished with three RBIs. The Giants knocked Lee out of the game during a six-run fifth that was capped by Juan Uribe's three-run homer off Darren O'Day.

San Francisco, which trailed 2-0, went ahead on Sanchez's run scoring double in the fifth and spoiled Texas' World Series debut.
