The 2010 World Series is ready to go – the Texas Rangers are playing the San Francisco Giants, after the Giants beat the Phillies 3-2 tonight to move on. The Rangers closed out the New York Yankees on Friday night to become the American League representative to the Series. The first game of the Major League Baseball World Series is scheduled for next Wednesday, Oct, 27, in San Francisco.
Giants Win NLCS 4-2 Over Phillies
The pitching rich Giants flexed their bats a bit to take control of this National League series and never look back. While the Phils put up a good fight, the Giants win tonight was emblematic of the series – good pitching, and small ball or whatever kind of hits it takes to win. This is the first time back to the Series for the Giants since 2002.
Rangers Beat Yanks to Win ALCS 4-2
The Texas Rangers had been pointing this direction all season long and they got it done against the Yankees in the ALCS. It was their usual combination of strong pitching and timely hitting, with Josh Hamilton stepping to the fore on that count. The Yankees kind of looked flat throughout the series, and could not get the clutch hits when they needed them.
2010 MLB World Series – Rangers vs Giants
The 2010 Major League Baseball World Series begins in five days and both teams will be well rested and ready to play. The first game pitching match up on Wednesday will very likely be Cliff Lee vs Tim Lincecum, and it should be a doozy!
