As advertised, World Series Game 5 is a pitchers' duel with no score after four innings between the San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers.

Texas finally got its first hit against Giants starter Tim Lincecum in the bottom of the fourth inning, a leadoff single by Michael Young. But Josh Hamilton struck out, Vladimir Guerrero grounded into a force out and Nelson Cruz struck out.

The Rangers' Cliff Lee, in turn, has allowed only two hits.

The Giants' Buster Posey grounded out to start the top of the inning. Cody Ross then struck out swinging at a nasty curveball from Lee and Juan Uribe flied out.
