World Series Game 4 update: Rangers, Giants scoreless after first inning

October 31, 2010 |  5:45 pm

The Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants were scoreless after the first inning despite getting runners on base in World Series Game 4 on Sunday night at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

With San Francisco's 21-year-old Madison Bumgarner on the mound, Elvis Andrus walked on four pitches. After Andrus was forced at second base on Michael Young's grounder, Josh Hamilton grounded into a double play.

The Giants' Andres Torres opened the game with an infield single against the Rangers' beefy right-handed pitcher Tommy Hunter, then he stole second base before Freddy Sanchez grounded out.

Aubrey Huff, San Francisco's designated hitter, also grounded out with Torres taking third base. But Torres was stranded when Buster Posey grounded out as well.
