Question of the Day

What has been the biggest debacle on Obama's watch?

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.

Once again, Prince Fielder fails to come through for the Tigers.

With two runners on in the bottom of the first inning, the meaty slugger grounded into an inning-ending double play.

Giants first baseman Brandon Belt made a nice pick of a wide and low throw from shortstop Brandon Crawford, barely keeping his foot on the bag it appeared.

Fielder is 0 for 5 with runners on base in the World Series. He began the night hitting just .205 with a homer and three RBIs this postseason.

Game 3 is scoreless heading to the second inning. Both starters appear to be throwing pretty well.

___

Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera and Giants catcher Buster Posey are the winners of the 2012 Hank Aaron Award, given to the top offensive player in each league.

The award was created in 1999 and this is the first time that the two recipients are facing each other in the World Series.

Cabrera and Posey received their awards before Game 3 in a ceremony attended by Aaron and Commissioner Bud Selig.
