ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Tonight's Game 5 of the World Series in Texas, could mark the end of baseball's 2010 postseason. The Giants grabbed a commanding three-games-to-one lead over the Rangers with last night's 4-0 victory in the Lone Star State.
That has San Francisco one win away from its first championship in 56 years.
Texas sends Cliff Lee to the mound tonight in hopes of extending its playoff run. He'll be going up against two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum. Lee was 7-0 in postseason play before the Giants beat him in Game 1 of the Fall Classic.
The Giants are hunting their first championship in 56 years, and first since moving West from New York in 1958. The Rangers are making their first appearance in the Fall Classic.
