WORLD SERIES: Bumgarner big in Giants’ 4-0 win in Game 4


Giants take a 3-1 series lead with 4-0 win over the Rangers in
Game 4.
Madison Bumgarner pitched beyond his years and the San Francisco Giants are on the brink of their first World Series title since 1954.

The 21-year-old rookie lefthander tossed a near-flawless eight innings, striking out six and keeping the heavy-hitting Texas Rangers scoreless as the Giants crept one step closer to the crown with a 4-0 victory Sunday night in Texas.

Brian Wilson retired the Rangers in order in the bottom of the ninth to save the win and a 3-1 series advantage heading into Monday’s Game 5.

Aubrey Huff put the Giants on the board in the third inning with a two-run home run deep to right field. Andres Torres doubled in Edgar Renteria in the seventh and Buster Posey lifted a solo home run to center in the eighth, providing more-than-enough runs for Bumgarner.

First pitch for Game 5 is scheduled for 4:57 p.m. local time. Tim Lincecum will take the mound for the Giants and Cliff Lee is on tap for the Rangers.
