World Series Game 4 update: Giants keep 2-0 lead over Rangers after six innings

October 31, 2010 |  7:31 pm

The Texas Rangers managed only their second hit off Madison Bumgarner as the San Francisco Giants continued to maintain their 2-0 lead over the Rangers after six innings at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland hit a one-out single to right field off the 21-year-old Giants starter. But Elvis Andrus then grounded into a double play.

Texas, meanwhile, was getting solid work from reliever Alexi Ogando when suddenly the right-hander had to leave the game.

Working his second inning after taking over for starter Tommy Hunter, Ogando had two outs and a 1-1 count on Juan Uribe when the pitcher apparently strained an oblique muscle and could not continue.

Former Angels pitcher Darren Oliver then took over on the mound for the Rangers and got Uribe to pop out.
