Giants fans celebrate as World Series Game 3 moves to Texas

Rangers battered again last night in 9-0 loss

Thousands of San Francisco Giants fans celebrated in the street last night after their team routed the Texas Rangers in Game 2 of the World Series. The Giants took a 2-0 lead in the series after defeating Texas 9-0.

Thousands of fans outside AT&T Park screamed, high-fived and hugged as a chant of "U - Ribe" broke out in honor of Juan Uribe's seventh-inning RBI that put the Giants ahead 2-0. A seven-run eighth inning clinched the game for the Giants.

Afterward, fans walked through the middle of Third Street and prevented cars from getting by, but most motorists just honked their horns in support.

The first pitch of Game 3 is scheduled to be thrown at 3:57 p.m. Pacific time tomorrow in Arlington, Texas.
