World Series Game 4: Giants vs. Rangers live inning-by-inning updates

October 31, 2010 |  4:53 pm


The San Francisco Giants shuffled their lineup Sunday as the Texas Rangers try to draw even in World Series Game 4 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

The Rangers won Saturday, 4-2, for their first World Series victory in franchise history after the Giants won the first two games in the best-of-seven series at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Giants left fielder Pat Burrell was benched after he struck out four times Saturday. Cody Ross will move from right field to take his place and Nate Schierholtz will play right field.

Travis Ishikawa will play first base for the Giants in place of Aubrey Huff, who will be San Francisco's designated hitter at the American League ballpark and bat third in the lineup.

Madison Bumgarner, the Giants' 21-year-old left-hander, takes the mound for San Francisco against Rangers right-hander Tommy Hunter.
