We all know the statistic: None of the 32 teams that have fallen behind in the NBA Finals have come back to win the title. The Golden State Warriors don’t have to worry about that, though, after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-82 to square the series 2-2.
Scott Kazmir had been 0-4 with a 4.85 ERA in his previous six starts. Thursday, he holds Texas to one hit in eight innings as the A’s beat the Rangers 7-0.
The Giants’ bullpen falters after starter Tim Lincecum wilts in the fifth inning of a 5-4 loss to the New York Mets, who avoid a three-game sweep. On the plus side, chants of “Let’s go Giants!” ring on a 91-degree night at Citi Field in New York.
The River Cats lose 9-6 at El Paso as the Giants’ Jake Peavy throws 83 pitches in an injury rehab assignment. He is expected to make at least one more start for the River Cats.
