The Giants expanded on their 2-0 lead in the eighth with seven runs to win, 9-0, on Thursday.
C.J. Wilson pitched good enough for the win but the Rangers offense didn’t show up again. Matt Cain pitched 7 2/3 of shut-out, four-hit ball.
The series heads straight to Texas now with the Rangers in a 2-0 hole. Still a chance to revive the bats in their own park in a town that hasn’t seen a championship.
But this is a Giants offense that has woken up since game six of the NLCS. Should be an interesting three-game trip to Arlington.
