SAN FRANCISCO -- The Angels set a postseason record for home runs this year, but they don't necessarily dig the long ball. They're more about "small ball," the typically National League style of play that involves singles and doubles, taking the extra bases, stealing, sliding, pestering and prevailing.

They did all of that and then some in Game 3 of the World Series on Tuesday night, stringing together two straight bat-around innings -- a Fall Classic first -- to overwhelm the San Francisco Giants, 10-4, before 42,707 frenzied fans in Pacific Bell Park.

The Angels took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series that continues with Game 4 here Wednesday evening. Angels rookie right-hander John Lackey will face Giants southpaw Kirk Rueter.

San Francisco scratched out the first run of the game in the opening inning, when Benito Santiago's fielder's choice groundout knocked in Kenny Lofton, who led off the game with a walk. More >

SAN FRANCISCO -- It would be too easy to just blame Livan Hernandez for the Giants' giant letdown in Game 3 of the World Series.

Hernandez, who had never before lost in the postseason, could not get out of the fourth inning and looked much more like the pitcher who tied for the National League lead in losses than the October hero he has so often been. But truth be told, it was also the Giants' too little, too late offense that led to an 10-4 loss at Pacific Bell Park, giving Anaheim a 2-1 lead in the series.

Barry Bonds' 437-foot, two-run homer to center field in the fifth inning was his seventh long ball this postseason, a record, and got the Giants within shouting distance at 8-4. Bonds also became the first player to go deep in each of his first three World Series games, but with San Francisco mustering just six hits on the night and Anaheim bats showing no signs of cooling off, the slugger's feat didn't make Wednesday's Game 4 any less of a must-win for the Giants. More >
