Wonder if that ball might have had a chance to go out on a warmer night.
Jackson nearly dropped it, but hung onto the ball with the heel of his glove.
Couple other interesting stats:
Detroit grounded into a pair of inning-ending double plays during the first three innings tonight. The Tigers led the majors in that category this season, grounding into 156 twin killings.
The Tigers didn’t trail in the ALCS. They haven’t led during the World Series.
The Giants, on the other hand, haven’t trailed in their last 49 innings going back to the start of Game 5 in the NLCS against St. Louis.
San Francisco leads 2-0 in the top of the fifth at Comerica Park.
Another squandered opportunity for the Tigers, who just can’t manage to get a big hit.
After consecutive singles put runners at first and second in the third inning, speedy rookie Quintin Berry grounded into an inning-ending double on the first pitch.View Entire Story
