The Giants won an important Game 4 last night in Texas. They appear on their way to win their first series since 1954. Now the Texas Rangers must run the table to win it all, they have to win or it's over for them.

 San Francisco have assembled a good team of younger players and mixed in some seasoned veterans for the run in this year's playoffs. The average age of everyone who played for the Giants this year was 29.6.

 The television ratings for this year's World Series have been horrible. Take this one for example, Game 3 was the second to lowest watched game all-time for any World Series game with a 6.7 rating. It is hard to believe but the 2008 World Series that the Phillies won was the worst of all-time. Game 3 of that series in 2008 was the lowest ranked for TV ever at a 6.1 rating, helped by a 90 minute rain delay, and the start time of 10 PM in the East.

 It's back to the two aces tonight, Lincecum and Lee going at it again. Lee can preserve the Rangers season with a win or 'the freak' as they call Lincecum can win it all tonight. The game comes on at 7:30 PM Eastern on Fox.
