SAN FRANCISCO -- The Angels have built a monumental season on guts and resiliency, and they'll have to rely on those qualities once again as they head back to Anaheim a game away from losing a World Series.

San Francisco beat up Angels starter Jarrod Washburn with three runs in each of the first two innings and did more damage late in the game, defeating Anaheim, 16-4, before 42,713 at Pacific Bell Park on Thursday.

The Giants took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series, forcing Anaheim to win two straight games at Edison Field to capture the first World Championship in Angels history.

The Giants must win just one to claim their first title since moving to San Francisco in 1958.

Washburn (0-2) couldn't find the strike zone in the first two innings and paid a big price for it.  More >

SAN FRANCISCO -- For all of the nail biting, finger crossing and heart pounding that characterized most of the first four games of the 98th World Series, Game 5 ended up a laugher.

Jeff Kent slugged a pair of two-run homers in the sixth and seventh innings to help the Giants run away from the Angels, 16-4 at Pacific Bell Park, and take a a 3-2 advantage in the series. The Giants are one win away from their first World Championship in San Francisco history and the first for the franchise since 1954.

Kent became the 46th player to hit two homers in a World Series game, joining the Angels' Troy Glaus and Tim Salmon, who also accomplished the feat in this series. Rich Aurilia also homered giving the Giants 12 roundtrippers for the series, which tied the World Series record set by the 1956 Yankees. The 16 runs scored tied for the second most ever in a World Series game, behind an 18-run output by the 1936 Yankees.  More >
