2010 World Series Game 5 – San Francisco Giants vs Texas Rangers Live on FOX
World Series Game 5 this Monday night November 1, 2010 7:57PM ET will still be at the Rangers Ballpark and will be the last home field advantage of the Rangers as Game 6 & 7, if necessary, will shift back to AT&T Park. Cliff Lee is scheduled to start in Game 5 against Giants Tim Lincecum.
Situation before Game 5: Giants lead series 3-1
With the Giants leading the Series, 3-1, everything is at stake in Game 5. Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants ended Cliff Lee’s amazing run of postseason dominance in Game 1 of the World Series. If Lincecum beats Lee again, the franchise will earn its first championship in 56 years.
Lincecum will try to help bring the first World Series title back to the Bay Area for the Giants on Monday night in Game 5 against Lee and the Texas Rangers.
These aces met in Game 1 at AT&T Park on Wednesday, and Lee entered the contest 7-0 with a 1.26 ERA in eight career postseason starts. The Rangers ace allowed seven runs over 4 2/3 innings in an 11-7 loss after yielding 12 runs over his previous 64 1/3 postseason innings.
Lincecum wasn’t at his best, but was good enough to earn the victory. He gave up four runs over 5 2/3 innings, improving to 3-1 with a 2.83 ERA in four postseason starts. The two-time reigning NL Cy Young Award winner expects to be better in his second chance against Texas.
Lincecum will have a tough time duplicating the effort of teammate Madison Bumgarner in Sunday’s 4-0 victory. Bumgarner dominated for eight innings, yielding three hits and striking out six as he and Buster Posey became the first rookie battery to start in the World Series since Spec Shea and Yogi Berra for the Yankees in 1947.
So, will San Francisco Giants get their 1st championship in 56 years or will Texas Rangers extend the series for another game at the AT&T Park?
Let’s all wait and watch for the Giants vs Rangers World Series Game 5 this Monday night.
