  • Good Pitching Beats Good Hitting and Defense Wins Championships

    7.5
    This game proves that those old clichés are really true. The Giants put their best defensive lineup on the field and with the exception of a Juan Uribe error, this was an outstanding defensive effort behind a superb pitching effort by Madison Baumgharner. I was reading that he is the fifth youngest pitcher to start a World Series game and the fourth to win the game. That's pretty good stuff.



    This was one of those games where it felt like it was over when Aubrey Huff hit that moonshot in the third to make it 2-0. The Rangers never got a runner past second base managing only three singles and becoming the first team in 44 years to be shut out more than once in a single Series.



    The outcome seems inevitable, but I hope that Cliff Lee can win Game 5 like he did last year and force the Series back to the Coast. The Giants have clinched the NLDS and NLCS on the road and it would be nice to win one in front of the fans, who have never had a World Champion to call their own.moreless

      San Francisco leads series 3-1

    • San Francisco pitcher Madison Bumgarner and catcher Buster Posey became the first rookie battery to start a World Series game since Spec Shea and Yogi Berra of the New York Yankees started Game 1 of the 1947 Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.

    • By being shut out in this game, the Texas Rangers became the first team since the 1966 Los Angeles Dodgers to be shut out more than once in a Series. The Baltimore Orioles shut the Dodgers out three consecutive times (Games 2, 3 and 4) on their way to a four-game sweep.

    • Texas reliever Alexi Ogando left the game in the seventh inning with a strained left oblique muscle.

    • The ceremonial first pitch was thrown out by former President George W. Bush. He was accompanied on the field by his father, former President George H. W. Bush. The catcher was Hall of Famer and current Rangers President Nolan Ryan.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (on his shortstop Edgar Renteria)
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: Well, Edgar has been through it. Guys look up to him. He's got that leadership you like from a veteran. He's excited about playing right now. He wants to be out there, and he's really been a calming influence, I think, on everybody else in the way he plays and how he plays to win. He's really lifted this club. He's had a tough year with the injuries, but it's probably benefited him a little bit because he's fresh. I don't know what he's going to do next year, but I will say he's playing like he wants to keep going.
      .
      (on his starter Madison Bumgarner)
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: This kid we brought up last year had a spot start for Johnson. He had great poise, composure, sense of belonging. He's a man. A 21-year-old guy to go out there and do what he did tonight. But I'll go back to last year, you know, he had to go back to Fresno. Worked on some things. You give him credit how hard he worked to get back here. As soon as he came up, the way he's handled everything has been so impressive. He's a special talent, and we're grateful we have him. You know, he does a lot of good things, holds runners, he can swing the bat. He's a good athlete.

    • (on hitting a home run so close to Mineral Wells, Texas, where he grew up)
      San Francisco Designated Hitter Aubrey Huff: It's certainly special. Haven't played these guys, normally we would play these guys before the Series started. It's in the back of your mind you'd like to hit a big homer to put you ahead. It's pretty surreal right now. Again, we've got a lot of work to do tomorrow. But definitely that was a big turning point of the game with (Game 3 starter) Colby Lewis the way he threw yesterday just getting ahead, and (starter Tommy) Hunter is the same type of pitcher. To be able to get the lead, we can be a little bit more aggressive. Certainly special for me no doubt.

    • (on whether Aubrey Huff's two-run homer in third allowed him to relax)
      San Francisco Starter Madison Bumgarner: I tried not to. I tried just to keep - I tried not to pay any attention at all to the score. I think that helps the pitcher keep the pressure on and keep making pitches. But it definitely helped the team out and a momentum shifter there, got it going our way, so it was a big hit.
      .
      (on his relationship with catcher Buster Posey)
      San Francisco Starter Madison Bumgarner: Yeah, I mean, ever since we met in Instructional League, I think we hit it off, pretty good friends. We're always on the same page out there in the game. I trust him 100 percent; whatever he puts down I want to throw. Besides that, he's a great catcher.
      .
      (on the toughest batter he had to face in the game)
      San Francisco Starter Madison Bumgarner: Whoever was up at the time, I guess. It's a great team. They're unbelievable. You don't want to take anything away from them. They've got a lot of great hitters on this team. I just felt like we were able to make pitches. Our defense behind me was incredible tonight, and if it wasn't for them I don't think it would have been the same result.
