SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants' 9-0 rout Thursday over the Texas Rangers included the usual helpings of "torture" but also the hallmarks of a championship team.

Matt Cain, the Giants' budding October star, hastened their victory in Game 2 of the World Series with 7 2/3 resolute innings that preserved his 0.00 postseason ERA. A proven October hero, Edgar Renteria, homered to break a fifth-inning scoreless tie and drove in three runs. For the second night in a row, the Giants' offense generated not just a big inning, but an enormous one, scoring seven runs in the eighth inning after having two outs with nobody on base.
