Giants up 2-0 after 2, looking for 3-0 lead in WS
Question of the Day
Pablo Sandoval decided sometime long ago that he was going to swing at the first pitch of his second at-bat.
Anibal Sanchez back to mound for third inning. He headed straight toward the clubhouse after the top of the second and Rick Porcello was warming in the bullpen for Detroit.
Here they go again. The Giants are taking advantage of every opportunity.
Hunter Pence drew a four-pitch walk from Sanchez to start the second inning. Pence stole second as Brandon Belt struck out and went to third on a wild pitch _ a high fastball that tailed way off target and glanced off catcher Alex Avila’s mitt.
With the count full, Gregor Blanco drove an off-speed pitch off the base of the wall in cavernous right-center for an easy triple that put San Francisco ahead.
The Giants are 8-1 when scoring first this postseason.
With two outs, Brandon Crawford lined an RBI single that fell just in front of speedy center fielder Austin Jackson.
In that situation _ two outs, a runner on third and the No. 9 hitter at the plate _ Jackson needs to be playing shallow enough that hardly anything can drop in front of him. A ball that gets over his head equals the same amount of runs as a ball that falls in front of him.
Sanchez is suddenly all over the place and the crowd is awfully quiet at Comerica Park, which was rocking during the ALCS sweep of the Yankees.
Several Giants players are bundled up on the bench but pitcher Ryan Vogelsong didn’t even have a jacket on.
