Four home runs hit last night, two each by the Giants and Rangers, as the Series shifted to Texas and the Rangers fought their way back into the Series. Now down only two games to one, the Rangers hope Tommy Hunter can help them tie it up against the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner.

Maybe it’s just me, but I get the feeling we’ll see a few more home runs tonight…

Tonight’s tater trots should be posted shortly after they occur in the game. Be sure to check back often. And follow me on Twitter for other thoughts about tonight’s game.

Giants vs. Rangers

Game 4

Aubrey Huff, San Francisco Giants – 27.55 seconds (Season Average: 24.35 seconds): A third inning blast by the Giants’ DH puts them on top 2-0. Obviously, Huff had no problem taking his time on that blast. Must be conserving his energy for the bench.

Buster Posey, San Francisco Giants – 20.15 seconds (Season Average: 20.95 seconds): The golden one gets his first home run of the postseason, and comes through with a nice, quick trot. Giants now lead 4-0.
