2010 World Series Game 3 – San Francisco Giants vs Texas Rangers Live on FOX
World Series Game 3 now shifts to Arlington, Texas, Saturday night October 30, 2010 6:57 PM ET at the Rangers Ballpark. Colby Lewis starts for the Rangers against Giants Jonathan Sanchez.
Situation before Game 3: Giants lead series 2-0
With the Giants leading 2-0, the series now shifts to Texas as they will host the next 3 games (3, 4 & 5).
Texas down 2-0, the hitters are slumping, the bullpen is a wreck and the manager is being criticized. A team that did so well in the ALCS playoffs got battered 11-7 in the opener, then embarrassed 9-0 in Game 2.
“Now that we’re home, we feel comfortable back in this place. Not taking anything away from the Giants, they beat us soundly,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “We’ve just got to come back here, get focused and win a game. We win a game, everything will be fine.”
Colby Lewis is set to start Game 3 Saturday night against Giants lefty Jonathan Sanchez. It will be the first Series game in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Lewis, who closed out the Yankees in the AL championship series, will try to stop San Francisco’s scoring spree. Texas has been tagged for 20 runs, the most allowed in a franchise’s first two World Series games. Colorado set the previous record of 15 runs in 2007.
Texas was one of baseball’s best home teams this year, the Giants were among the top road clubs. The Rangers also had been doing well on the road — 5-1 in the AL playoffs — before San Francisco stopped them.
So, will the Giants score another win to extend their lead to 3-0 or will the Rangers come up big, this time in their home, in Game 3? Let’s all wait and watch for the Giants vs Rangers World Series Game 3 this Saturday night.

Texas Rangers are back in the World Series. The Rangers, behind emerging October ace Colby Lewis, came home and threw themselves the biggest tailgate party of them all, beating San Francisco 4-2 Saturday night but still trailing the Giants 2-1.
Rookie Mitch Moreland hit an early three-run homer, Josh Hamilton later launched a 426-foot shot and the Rangers posted a Series win that took the franchise 50 years to achieve.
Lewis took over after that. He worked around solo home runs by Cody Ross — the fifth of the postseason for the NL championship series MVP — in the seventh inning and Andres Torres in the eighth. The Giants eventually brought the tying run to the plate, but reliever Darren O’Day retired Buster Posey to end the eighth.
Washington finally brought in Neftali Feliz, and the rocket-armed closer pitched a perfect ninth for his first save of the postseason. Washington was criticized in the first two games at San Francisco for leaving Feliz in the bullpen while the Giants broke away.
No team in World Series history has overcome a 3-0 deficit and now Texas won’t have to try, either. Rangers starter Tommy Hunter, especially good at home, faces rookie Madison Bumgarner in Game 4 on Sunday night. (Source: ESPN)
