Arlington, TX (Oct 31) – The San Francisco Giants defeated the Texas Rangers by the score of 4-0 this evening. The win put them one win away from a World Championship.
The Giants have not won it all since 1954 when they were still in New York and played at the polo Grounds.
Madison Bumgarner at the age of 21 is a rookie left-handed pitcher was just dominant. Bumgarner pitched eight innings giving up no runs on three hits with two walks and six strikeouts. Brian Wilson pitched a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts.
Tommy Hunger only lasted four innings giving up five hits and two runs with a walk and a strikeout. The Rangers used four other relievers, Ogando pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings but left with an injury to his oblique.
Ogando struck out two batters; Darren Oliver pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up two hits and a run with two strikeouts. Darren O’day pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up one hit and one run, Derek Holland pitched a perfect inning giving up a walk and a strikeout.
Andres Torres had three hits for the Giants with an RBI. Aubrey had one hit and two RBI; he hit a big two run shot to get the Giants on the board. Buster Posey, had a hit and an RBI, Edgar Renteria had three hits.
Michael Young, Nelson Cruz, and Mitch Moreland each had a hit. Huff got the Giants on the board in the third inning with a two-run home run. Torres had an RBI double in the seventh inning to give the Giants a 3-0 lead.
The Giants would add a fourth run in the eighth on a solo home run by Buster Posey. Tim Lincecum will go up again Cliff Lee tomorrow in a rematch of Game 1.
The Giants will be looking to celebrate tomorrow and not have to go back and home and keep playing. If the Giants cannot beat Lee, they will be heading back home for the final two games. I am sure they would love to finish this off tomorrow but realize it would not be that easy.
