You get the feeling the Tigers are never going to get a big hit in this World Series.
They loaded the bases with one out in the fifth, but rookie Quintin Berry struck out swinging at a letter-high fastball. Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera, a .416 career hitter with the bases loaded, got jammed by Ryan Vogelsong and popped out to shortstop.
Giants players raised their arms in the dugout. Starting to taste it, perhaps.
Detroit is 0 for 4 with runners in scoring position tonight and 1 for 11 in the Series.
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.
