Giants Win World Series Game 4

Despite an early 4-1 lead, the Kansas City Royals couldn't maintain the upper hand against San Francisco in game four of the World Series Saturday.

The Giants scored ten unanswered runs en route to an 11-4 victory. Kansas City's starting pitcher Jason Vargas said his goal was to set the stage for the team's dominant bullpen.

"As a starting pitcher you want to get as deep into the game and close the gap for the bullpen as much as you can," Vargas said.

Despite Vargas' efforts, pitchers Danny Duffy, Brandon Finnegan and Tim Collins crumbled against the Giants offense. Game five is Sunday in San Francisco, with James Shields as the Royals’ starting pitcher.
