Madbum pitches the Giants to within one one of a World Series title!


The San Franciso Giants shutout the Texas Rangers for the second time in four games.  The club with all the offensive weapons at it's disposal, you know: Elvis Andrus, Michael Young, Ian Kinsler, Josh "Superman" Hamilton, and Nelson Cruz, have only mustered a grand total of four runs in the last 3 games against this Giants staff if you take away game 1.  This is the team that set an ALCS record with 39 runs against the Yankees.  The team that 49 out of the 50 states thought was gonna manhandle the Giants.

Instead, a 21 year old rookie southpaw from North Carolina held those bats to three hits in eight innings.

Good pitching beats good hitting.  Sure the Rangers have some nice starters, but really, after Cliff Lee their starters aren't Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, Jonathan Sanchez, and Madison Bumgarner.  If one of the Rangers starters is suffering from fatigue due to a career high number of innings pitched as Sanchez is for the Giants then they have nobody to step into the void and replace him.

The Giants do.  His name is Madison Bumgarner.

It's time for the Giants to bring a World Series title to San Francisco.  They need to do it so the kids have something to celebrate since they won't be able to get toys in their Happy Meals anymore.

Tonight is game 5 with Cliff Lee Vs. Tim Lincecum.
