ANAHEIM, Calif. -- As Disney classics go, this one ranked right up there with Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

From Barry Bonds' monumental blast in his first ever World Series at-bat and J.T. Snow's crowd-silencing two-run shot in the sixth to the Rally Monkey-induced comeback by the Angels and the final pitch by Robb Nen, Game 1 of the 2002 World Series lived up to its billing as the Giants defeated the Angels, 4-3, before 44,603 fans at Edison Field to take an early lead in the best-of-seven series.

The victory marked the third straight playoff series in which the Giants have opened with a road victory and the first World Series win for the franchise since 1962.

Snow's blast with two outs in the sixth inning, which chased Angels starting pitcher Jarrod Washburn, turned out to be the game-winning blow. The lefty-hitting Snow drilled the southpaw's 3-and-0 offering over the wall in left-center to give the Giants a 4-1 lead.  More >

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Runners left in scoring position, untimely hitting, and a starting pitcher who gave up three home runs.

This lack of execution is very uncommon for the 2002 Anaheim Angels, but on Saturday it led to a 4-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants in Game 1 of the World Series before 44,603 at Edison Field.

It gave the Angels their third straight loss in the opening game of a postseason series and their first loss at home in the playoffs.

Anaheim rebounded from the 8-5 defeat in Yankee Stadium in the ALDS and the 2-1 loss in the Metrodome in the ALCS in style. The Angels ran the table in both series.

That's why despite the tough loss on the biggest stage, they said they were pumped for Game 2.  More >
