World Series Game 3: Giants vs. Rangers live inning-by-inning updates
It's a warm, clear evening at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington as the Texas Rangers try to use home-field advantage to rebound from an 2-0 deficit tonight in World Series Game 3.
With the Fall Classic moving to an American League park after the Giants swept the first two games at AT&T Park in San Francisco, the teams will be using the designated hitter in their lineups.
That means Vladimir Guerrero, the Rangers' DH and former Angels star, returns to the Texas lineup and he'll bat cleanup Saturday night. Infielder Pablo Sandoval, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda among Giants' fans, will be San Francisco's DH and he's hitting in the eighth spot.
Left-hander Jonathan Sanchez is the starting pitcher for the Giants, while right-hander Colby Lewis takes the mound for Texas.
