Bumgarner pitches Giants to brink of Series crown

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Madison Bumgarner allowed three hits in eight innings, Aubrey Huff and Buster Posey homered and San Francisco beat the Texas Rangers 4-0 on Sunday night to take a 3-1 World Series lead and move within one win of the Giants' first title since 1954.

Bumgarner, San Francisco's 21-year-old No. 4 starter, didn't allow a runner past second base. Brian Wilson finished with a hitless ninth for the Giants' second shutout of the Series.

Huff hit a two-run homer in the third off loser Tommy Hunter. Andres Torres added an RBI double in the seventh against Darren Oliver, and Posey homered in the eighth off Darren O'Day.

In Game 5 on Monday night, opening-game winner Tim Lincecum pitches for the Giants against Game 1 loser Cliff Lee.
