October 27, 2010 |  6:23 pm

The low-scoring pitching duel many anticipated to see heading into tonight's World Series opener finally took shape in the fourth inning.

Cliff Lee retired the Giants 1-2-3 the inning, posting his sixth strikeout of the contest off Juan Uribe.

Tim Lincecum continues to settle down after his shaky performance in the first two innings, getting Ian Kinsler, Bengie Molina and Cliff Lee to ground out. Texas' Mitch Moreland was stranded at second after hitting a two-out double to right-center field.
