Giants get a shutout from 21-year-old

With a 4-0 win pitched by rookie lefthander Madison Bumgarner, the Giants are one victory away from their first World Series championship since coming west with the Dodgers in 1958. They lost in the series in 2008, 1989 and 1962. (The Dodgers have won the World Series five times since 1958, but haven't played in the series Series since 1988.)
