San Francisco Giants wins 4th game of 2010 World Series vs Texas Rangers, 4-0

By on Nov 1, 2010 in Baseball, Sports Comments

The San Francisco Giants is just a win away from its first World Series crown since 1954. The Giants sweep the Texas Rangers, 4-0, to win game four of the 2010 World Series.

Aubrey Huff and Buster Posey delivered the winning runs for the Giants, while Rookie Madison Bumgarner pitched eight scoreless innings. Huff, a native of Fort Worth, hit two home runs in the third to help beat his hometown club. Bumgarner, a 21-year-old US lefty, is the youngest starting pitcher in the World Series since 1981. He became the fifth-youngest pitcher to start a World Series game, 29 years after Fernando Valenzuela pitched with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Rangers only had two hits against Bumgarner in the first six innings.

The Giants now leads the best-of-seven final World Series, 3-1. They can claim the 2010 World Series crown if they win game five in the Rangers‘ home field.

Former President George W. Bush threw the ceremonial first pitch, before the start of game 4.
