World Series heads to big state for game three

The World Series shifts to the home of the Texas Rangers, whose success-starved fans get their first taste of the sports showcase event with the National League champion San Francisco Giants coming to town.

The Rangers trail the best-of-seven series 2-0 after an eighth-inning collapse by their relievers led to a seven-run burst in a 9-0 defeat in San Francisco before they headed off for Game Three at Rangers Ballpark.

There should be a rousing homecoming for the Rangers, playing in the first ever World Series for the franchise.
