World Series Game 4 update: Hamilton catch keeps Giants, Rangers scoreless after two innings

October 31, 2010 |  6:15 pm


A diving catch by the Texas Rangers' Josh Hamilton saved a run and the Rangers and San Francisco Giants remained scoreless after two innings Sunday in World Series Game 4.

With Cody Ross on first base and one out at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Travis Ishikawa grounded into what appeared to be a double play. But Ishikawa was called safe at first base, drawing a brief argument from Texas Manager Ron Washington.

Ishikawa then took third base on Edgar Renteria's single. Nate Schierholtz followed by hitting a shallow fly to center field and Hamilton made a diving catch to end the threat.

In the bottom of the inning, the Rangers' Ian Kinsler drew a two-out walk from San Francisco starter Madison Bumgarner. Giants second baseman Freddy Sanchez then snagged a high line drive hit by Jeff Francoeur.
