The Giants can wrap up the World Series tonight in Texas as they hold a commanding 3-1 lead. The Giants also erased the Cliff Lee mystique as they pounded the Rangers’ ace for 8 hits and 7 runs, knocking him out in the fourth inning. Now the Giants hold the psychological advantage heading into this one. Tim Lincecum has been the best road pitcher in baseball this season with his team winning 14 games when he has started on the road. He has also struck out 124 in 112 innings of work on the road. The Giants will be in their sweet spot once again as they are 6-0 in their last six games with a total of 6.5 or less, as well as taking down left-hand starters to the tune of an 8-1 mark in their last nine. The Rangers have also now lost Lee's last six starts when he is on four days rest, in other words, pitching in rotation. The Giants are in the Rangers’ heads now as they have won 16 of the last 18 meetings. San Francisco wins the World Series tonight.
