There was talk that Scherzer was dealing with a sore shoulder down the stretch, but he’s pitched well in the postseason. This is only his third start, and he was held to a total of 11 innings during the first two. But he racked up 18 strikeouts in those two games and compiled a 0.82 ERA.
Strong defense has been a huge part of the Giants‘ success in this Series so far. First baseman Brandon Belt made an excellent pick when third baseman Pablo Sandoval short-hopped a throw in the third.
Sandoval singled in the third for his 24th hit this postseason, one shy of the record for a single postseason held by Marquis Grissom (1995), Darin Erstad (2002) and David Freese (2011).
Prince Fielder is 1 for 12 in the Series.
FOX reporter Erin Andrews _ and most of the fans around her _ are bundled up in the stands.
San Francisco has taken the lead in the second inning for the second consecutive night.
Hunter Pence hit a ground-rule double to left-center with one out and Brandon Belt followed with a triple deep into the right-field corner.
Knowing how much trouble his team has had scoring runs, Tigers manager Jim Leyland brought the infield in and that decision saved a run when Gregor Blanco grounded out to second base. Belt held at third.View Entire Story
