Meanwhile, the victory in the NLCS gave the Giants their fourth World Series appearance since moving to San Francisco prior to the 1958 season; their most recent appearance had been in the 2002 World Series, when they lost to the Anaheim Angels in seven games.
Coincidentally, the Giants and Rangers faced off in the first regular-season interleague game, on Rangers reliever Darren Oliver, in his first stint with the club, threw the game's first pitch.
Enfranchised in 1961 as the second iteration of the Washington Senators, the team only had one season with a winning percentage above .500 out of 11 seasons in Washington, D. The team relocated to Arlington, Texas, for the 1972 season but failed to make the postseason for over 20 years.
Despite being 10 games under .500, the Rangers were leading the American League West division on , 1994, when the 1994–95 Major League Baseball strike began and the remainder of the season was cancelled.
The Giants were the first National League champions to have home-field advantage since 2001, because the NL won the All-Star Game 3–1 on (ironically, the winning pitcher in the game, Matt Capps of the Washington Nationals, would take part in the American League playoffs after being sent to the Minnesota Twins at the trade deadline).
For the second consecutive year, Series games were scheduled for earlier start times in hope of attracting younger viewers.
