Giants-Tigers tied at 3 after 8 in Game 4 of WS
Big-time pitching by Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt.
Middle of the Detroit lineup, and all three go down swinging. Two of them right-handed against the left-handed Affeldt, too.
Score still tied at 3 heading to the ninth inning.
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.
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).
“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.
