texas rangers and now just need one more win to become world champions. our joe fonzi is here now with am so of the highlights from tonight's big game. >> this truly is uncharted history. never in the history of the san francisco giants have they led a world series 3-1. that means they have three more chances to win once and bring san francisco its first baseball world championship. bruce boche tweaked the lineup against tommy hunter. and it worked. aubrey huff the designated hitter tonight put the first runs on the board with a towering two run shot into the texas night in the third inning. in the 7th boche set things in motion. edgar rentaria with the pitch. andre torres finds the gap in right center. rentaria scores easily and it is 3-0 game. then in the 8th off darren oday posey sends it into the center. he was so impressive all summer with the bat.
the other half was 21-year-old madison baumgartner. he gets mitch although looking to hit in the 8th. the giants win 4-0 and take a strangle hold on the series leading now 3-1. fred inglis has been following the giants this entire post season. live from texas. fred, still one more to go but i'm sure the giants are feeling it, aren't they? >> oh, they have to. even cody ross admitted out loud, yes, they are thinking about it. they can feel it. they can taste it. they it can smell it. but they would not be able to do that without this 21-year- old hickory north carolina native madison baumgartner. he was simply too cool. he was playing like it was a natural, a natural game for him. it was just game 52 or something. he walked the first batter on four pitches. but after that he was just absolutely dominant. the bottom of the third after having a 2-0 lead, he goes on
eight pitches to shut down the rangers. the 5th inning shooting down the rangers with eight pitches. strikes down and made guerrero look just sick on a couple of changeups. madison baumgartner gets this win and you have to say he is no longer a diamond in the rough. >> it feels good for sure. i don't think it will sink in until we get another win. but right now i am just looking for tomorrow. >> a great kid. i can't say what he did tonight. a 21-year-old kid on that stage pitching like that. he had it all working. but he did his job. and we also had a good 9th inning. but there is no question that willy was coming in the game. >> a good spot to be in, no doubt. but we had a 3-1 lead against the phillies and they came back and beat us. a tough game in our place. and we had to go back and really grind out a game six. didn't really want to go to
game seven. so it's great. but you know, this is the playoffs. you know, games are certainly capable of winning three straight. we have got to go out there tomorrow and get back to work. we are acting like we are down 1-3. >> aubrey huff put in as the dh. dh not a real successful thing for the giants in the past. he came off the first pitch. he took it out and got the two run homerun. he is a dallas native. his favorite team when he grew up was the texas rangers. so he did it against his old team. and aubrey huff and company will now go and try to do the impossible, beat cliff lee. the rangers ace not once, but for the second time in this world series. and, joe, it's not easy. but you know what, they have overcome so many things anymore i am just down to why not? >> yes, it's not so surprising anymore. hear more from fred coming up in sports wrap. but here is the simple math.

taste it and smell it and everything. all of the senses. but we have to stay focused. >> i heard on your wedding, for your wife, you gave her a bull for a wedding gift? >> yes. it is five days old. just went into bottle feeding. got it for her and brought it home. >> today that bull is? >> it's at home and kind of like a dog. it just runs around like a pet. [ laughter ] >> good old country hardball with madison baumgartner from hickory, north carolina. the battery made from georgia. buster posey a town of about 300. that battery will be around for a while. and hopefully they will be part of the celebration tomorrow if they can finish off these texas rangers. not an easy job with cliff lee. something they have done once, beat cliff lee their ace. they will have to do it again or else they go back home, a place where the rangers have never, ever won, joe, 0-11 all
times. so get it done tomorrow. if not, get back in the city and complete the job there. reporting live at arlington, fred ingls for sports wrap. >> the whole bay area hopes to be celebrating tomorrow. for the first time since 2002 a bay area pro football team has a 500 record at the halfway point. that team is the oakland raiders who got a solid game against seattle today with campbell. oakland gets the 10-0 half time lead. in the second half the raiders were helped by a little good fortune. campbell's pass goes off the chest of darius and into the arms of michael bush. a 55-yard play just the way they drew it up. that sets up a sebastian field goal to make it 13-0 oakland after three. more fortunate bounces of the ball in the fourth quarter matt hasslebeck wants to queen but dion gets the ball. and it is picked off by branch.
they held hasslebeck to just 160 yards passing on the day. and the raiders immediately took advantage of that turnover. campbell throws to hayward bay who gets behind the defender. and then he won't be caught. it is a 69-yard scoring play. a breakout day for haywood bay who had 500 catches for 150 yards and a td. did i say breakout day for haywood bay? the win though didn't come without a price for hamilton who goes down awkwardly on his ankle. x-rays are negative but don't know how long he will be out. they do know they are 4-4 after the 33-3 win. another little fun fact, the raiders run up 500-yard plus offensive games back-to-back for the first time in franchise history. campbell likes the impact made by haywood bay. >> well, darius is a guy who knew that. i said today is your opportunity. and not just you, but all of
the young guys. go out there and have a big day. i thought he answered the bill. he came out with a chip on his shoulder. 49ers had to go all the way to london to get their second win of the year. the way the season had gone they would travel to mozambique if it meant a win. troy smith tried to quick some life into the 49er offense that took over the broncos. a 3-0 soccer score the 9ers trailed 10-3 in the fourth. smith finds some time and throws one for walker to go up and get. san francisco and business at the denver one. from there smith took matters into his own hands rolling right and into the end-zone and the game is tied at 10. after a three and out by the broncos they are productive on their next series. smith to michael crabtree and it is 17-10. san francisco. the 49er defense looked to pretty much put the game away. kyle orton taking off running has the ball stripped away by
manny lawson and goes right to spike who recovers and then returns the ball to the denver 18. and that led to a frank gore run, a three yard burrow that made it 24-10. that made it interesting. 9ers needed to play defense to stop the broncos at the end. put the rush on orton. the underthrow pass is picked off by chauncy spencer. and that seals the deal. the 49ers search for win two is successful in london. a buy week before going about a back to san francisco. 49ers are 2-6. the nfc leading seahawks are 4-3. the final [ female announcer this is a strawberry pop tart.
