Well, we were expecting a Lincecum v Lee pitching duel... and we got an 11-7 run-fest!
Match report here:
Tim Lincecum started a little shakily for San Francisco, both in terms of pitching and a couple of odd moments fielding, as Texas took an early 2-0 lead - but the Giants soon levelled, and then took Lee apart in the fifth inning.
Now then, here's a stat from mlb.com - the winner of Game 1 has gone on to win the World Series in 11 of the last 13 years - so can the Giants push on, or can the Rangers bounce back?
Game 2 is tonight - Matt Cain (SF) v C.J. Wilson (TEX) on the mound, and as before, it's live on BBC 5 live sports extra and the BBC Sport website for UK users.
And you can listen back to Game 1's commentary from JG and JC on the BBC iPlayer here:
