Sandoval homers twice off Verlander in Game 1
Verlander threw 66 of those pitches in his final two innings. The Giants really put some tough at-bats on him and made him work hard.
Delmon Young’s attempted throw to the plate hit the ground before it even reached the infield.
Wonder what kind of odds you could have gotten in Vegas on Verlander giving up a run-scoring hit to a pitcher?
Zito had a nice bunt single for an RBI in his previous start, Game 5 of the NLCS in St. Louis. Giants pitchers have an RBI in four straight postseason games.
Young fails to run on a tapper right in front of the plate, so Giants catcher Buster Posey quickly tags him and throws to second for an easy double play in the fourth. Prince Fielder had opened the inning with a single.
The Giants are getting the good bounces so far. Angel Pagan hit a chopper toward third base that hit the corner of the bag and kicked into shallow left field for a two-out double in the third inning.
