Aubrey Huff's
two-run home run gave the San Francisco Giants a 2-0 lead over the Texas Rangers in the third inning of World Series Game 4 on Sunday night.

After Andres Torres doubled down the right-field line against Texas starter Tommy Hunter, Huff -- the Giants' designated hitter in this game -- slammed his homer deep into the right-field corner at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

San Francisco starter Madison Bumgarner retired the side in the bottom of the inning, as Bengie Molina grounded out, Mitch Moreland struck out and Elvis Andrus grounded out. 

The Giants are trying to take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven-game series to win their first world championship since 1954, when they played in New York.
