The World Series Game 4 Giants-Rangers line was listed anywhere from Texas -147 to -155.  The best line on the Giants was +142 at Diamond Sports International.

The Texas Rangers won their first World Series game at the Metroplex ever Saturday night. 

"We wanted to get back home. We felt comfortable here," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "We knew we could finally put a good game together, and we did."

The final score was 4-2.

Sunday evening, the Giants will start a second straight left-hander with Madison Bumgarner following Jonathan Sanchez to the mound. Sanchez gave up four runs over 4 2/3 innings Saturday.

Bumgarner went 1-0 with a 4.22 ERA in his first two playoff starts, and also threw two scoreless innings of relief in Philadelphia in the Game 6 clincher in the NL championship series.

Texas starts Tommy Hunter, who turned in an outstanding season, going 13-4 with a 3.73 ERA in 23 games, including 22 starts.
