Tonight the Giants fans whom have been waiting 53 years to celebrate a World Series Championship will possibly celebrate tonight with a win or the party will be prolonged and head back to San Francisco to see if they get a party or not. Pitching tonight for the Rangers will be their Ace Cliff Lee who had a bad experience in Game 1 as he was around the strike zone but on the outer side if the plate and still the Giants went 4 for 7 or batted .571 in the early going. For all his previous success in postseason this is his first time to pitch in a playoff in Texas.
Where his normal count was like .231 in early going, so that surely indicates some control differences. It will be interesting to see if in this game 5 if he attempts to use the inner side of the plate as in most of his outings 35 percent of his speed or heat is on the batters hands side. He also had problems in game 1 of getting his curve ball in the strike zone as only 3 of his 11 curve balls thrown were for strikes.
He also will have to have more success in pitching to Freddy Sanchez and Aubrey Huff in Game 5. Check out the World Series Odds at SBGGlobal.com and Join the Action and take advantage of their up to 60% Bonus on new deposits and reloads.
While going to the mound in Game 5 for the Giants, Tim Lincecum as most are aware did not exactly overpower the Ranges in Game 1. He gave up 8 strong hits and also in his 5 innings walked three Ranger batters. He was throwing a lot of change ups and sliders with about 45% speedballs. Strange enough the Rangers 7th and 8th batters, Moreland and Molina each managed two hits off Lincecum. This will be Lincecums second opportunity to win a postseason series. He is 2-1 in postseason and the Rangers jumped him in game one but he was able to regain control before he was replaced.

This World Series Game 5 should be very interesting and we expect to see a pitchers dual unless the Ranger batters can come out of their slump and show some offense, especially Hamilton and Guerrero who in Sundays game had seven combined at bats that were without hits. Then in this World Series Vladimir Guerrero is 1 out of ten and their slugger Josh Hamilton is only 2 for 16 at bats. Enjoy the Action from SBGGlobal.com.
