Tigers look to rebound against Giants in Game 2
Question of the Day
Somehow, Doug Fister appears to be OK.
Fister, however, never went down and never appeared to be hurt.
Very, very fortunate.
Game is still scoreless after three innings.
Early mistake by the Tigers, who squandered a chance at a big inning with some overly aggressive baserunning.
Prince Fielder was hit by a pitch to open the second and Delmon Young grounded a double inside third base. Chugging around the bases, the hefty Fielder was waved home by third base coach Gene Lamont and cut down on a close play at the plate.
Lamont should have held Fielder at third, setting up the Tigers with two runners in scoring position and nobody out. Instead, Fielder made the first out at home plate _ a definite no-no. Detroit didn’t score in the inning.
San Francisco executed a fine double cutoff on the play, with second baseman Marco Scutaro _ who else? _ making the relay throw to the plate. He alertly dashed over toward the left-field line to be the second cutoff man. Nice defensive fundamentals.
FOX said it was the first 7-4-2 putout in World Series history.
Strong start for Tigers right-hander Doug Fister as well.
