Tonight’s matchup of the San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers is the first meeting of these two teams since November 1, 2010, the last meaningful game for either of these teams. And although it’s only Spring Training and this game is essentially meaningless, it’s still a chance to remember last season’s epic culmination at the Rangers expense.
Tonight is the first televised game of the Giants Cactus League season, with the first pitch scheduled at 6:05 PT (7:05 MT) on CSN Bay Area, as well as mlb.tv (for paid subscribers). Mike Krukow and Duane Kiper will get the call as Jonathan Sanchez will start for the Giants and Alexi Ogando will get the start for the Rangers. Here are the lineups:
That’s a lot of guys that played in the World Series, should be a nice day to reminisce and bask in the glory of last season’s championship.
