“No, I do not,” McCarver says proudly. “I live in real time, not fantasy, pal.”
Delmon Young hits an opposite-field homer to right for Detroit, tying the score at 3 in the bottom of the sixth.
Giants starter Matt Cain appeared to be in great shape after striking out Miguel Cabrera and getting Prince Fielder on a popup to begin the inning. Young, however, sent a spinning slider into the strong wind and there was little doubt it would clear the fence.
Fielder is 1 for 13 in the Series.
Posey was actually out in front on a changeup, but he got the barrel of the bat to the ball and lofted it down the line.
Brandon Crawford just made another terrific play at shortstop, barehanding a grounder that deflected off Giants starter Matt Cain and making an accurate, off-balance throw to get speedy rookie Quintin Berry at first.
That prevented Miguel Cabrera from coming to the plate with two runners on in the fifth. Instead, he’ll lead off the sixth.
Tigers lead 2-1. Both starting pitchers still in the game.View Entire Story
