Game 3: Texas Rangers 4 - San Francisco Giants 2
Giants lead series, 2-1

The Texas Rangers have made this a series!

Their Game 3 victory is the first World Series win in franchise history and the first World Series game ever won by a team from Texas. The state had been 0-6 (Rangers 0-2 and the Houston Astros 0-4) in World Series play.

Mitch Moreland and Josh Hamilton hit the 1st and 2nd World Series home runs in franchise history and provided all the scoring for Colby Lewis, who got the first-ever World Series win for the Rangers.

Neftali Feliz shut the door in the ninth and recorded the first-ever World Series save in Rangers history.

Lot's of firsts when you, um, win your first-ever World Series game.
