The Rangers have their backs against the wall, and will throw their ace Cliff Lee against San Francisco in what is now a win or go home situation in Arlington, Texas.
The Giants will put Tim Lincecum on the bump, who is 1-0 in the World Series, but was far from flawless in Game 1. He won in large part because of a Giants offensive explosion of 11 runs.
The question is, where did the Texas Rangers offense go?
The Giants can answer that question: it's sitting in Buster Posey's mitt.
Madison Bumgarner allowed just three hits Sunday night, Matt Cain threw a gem in Game 2 and the Giants bullpen continues to be lights out. Even when Texas tags one, it bounces on the top of the fence, and spins backwards for a double instead of a home run.
While walking around the streets last night, you may have noticed a lot of San Francisco fans. That's because the Orange and Black San Francisco Giants are draped in Halloween colors: it's merely a coincidence.
Or is it?
Fear the beard, Ross the Boss, Ring around the Posey, Huff Daddy, the list of Giant personalities is seemingly endless. They are attracting to support, and play the underdog role to their advantage.
Cliff Lee will try to save the Rangers season, with Nolan Ryan and George W. Bush looking on from behind the plate at the ballpark in Arlington. Keep in mind, it's an elimination game, nobody in the Rangers bullpen is off limits. The Giants will take the series back to AT&T Park, and have two shots to win it all in front of a confident San Francisco crowd.
