Looking to avoid a 0-2 World Series deficit, the Rangers hope to end their woes at AT&T Park and become the first team in the postseason to get the best of Giants starter Matt Cain on Thursday.
A look at the best-of-seven World Series between the Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants.
With pitchers ruling these playoffs, Matt Cain made it six shutouts — a half-dozen, count ‘em! — in only 22 games this postseason.
Matt Cain pitched seven impressive innings and outdueled 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels for his first postseason win, and the Giants beat the Phillies 3-0 on Tuesday for a 2-1 lead in the NL championship series.
Once again, the pitching matchup is drawing most of the Game 3 pregame attention: Cole Hamels vs. Matt Cain.
