Giants blank Rangers

5:29 pm on 30 October 2010

The San Francisco Giants have beaten the Texas Rangers 9-0 to go two games to nil up in baseball's World Series.

The series shifts to Texas for game three of the best of seven series.

Both sides beat more fancied teams in their league finals with the Giants overcoming Philadelphia and Texas beating the New York Yankees.

The Giants haven't won the World Series in 56 years - their last was with Willie Mays when they still played in New York. They've lost three World Series battles since then.

The Rangers had never been to the World Series in the 50 years of their existence.
