Giants-Tigers tied at 3 after 6 in Game 4 of WS

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Tigers starter Max Scherzer was lifted with one out in the top of the seventh. With a runner on second, rookie Drew Smyly retired Brandon Crawford on a flyball and Octavio Dotel got Angel Pagan on a grounder to second to keep the score tied.

Giants starter Matt Cain works a 1-2-3 seventh and we’re headed to the eighth tied at 3.

FOX just showed Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the stands, wearing a ski cap and bundled up just like everyone else.

A few hours earlier, Stafford led the Lions to a 28-24 victory at home over the Seattle Seahawks. Play-by-play man Joe Buck points out, for the benefit of fantasy football owners, that Stafford had three touchdown passes (though he didn’t to mention that Stafford also ran for a score).

Buck says one thing he knows is that broadcast partner Tim McCarver does not have a fantasy team.

“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.

Andy Dirks singled and Jhonny Peralta nearly put Detroit up by two with a long drive to left, but Gregor Blanco caught it just in front of the wall.

Fielder is 1 for 13 in the Series.

Buster Posey’s two-run homer in the top of the sixth off Max Scherzer puts the Giants back in front, 3-2.

Marco Scutaro led off with an infield single and, one out later, Posey reached out and pulled a changeup down the left-field line for his third home run of the postseason.
