Tigers go up 2-1 after 3, trying to avoid WS sweep
The Tigers just got some help from the elements _ perhaps their first break of the entire Series.
A strong gust of wind blowing out to right field carried Miguel Cabrera’s two-out drive into the seats for a two-run homer in the third inning.
Detroit is up 2-1, its first lead in the Series and the first time the Giants have trailed in 57 innings since Game 4 of the NLCS against St. Louis.
He’s using his changeup and he got a big out when cleanup hitter Buster Posey flied out with runners at the corners to end the top of the third inning.
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.
Detroit wastes a leadoff single in the bottom of the second by Delmon Young, one of the few Tigers hitters pulling his weight so far.
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.
Ryan Theriot flied out to end the inning. Giants 1, Tigers 0.
Theriot is the DH for the first time in his career.
The temperature at first pitch was 44 degrees, with a stiff wind making it feel even colder.
Once again, runs could be hard to come by.
Believe it or not, the World Series could end tonight.
Seems as though it just started.
San Francisco ace Matt Cain will be on the mound at chilly Comerica Park as the Giants go for a four-game sweep of Detroit and their second championship in three years. First pitch coming up at 8:15 p.m. EDT.
Cain has already pitched a pair of clinchers in this postseason, earning the win in Game 5 of the division series against Cincinnati and Game 7 of the NLCS against St. Louis. A victory tonight would mark the perfect finish for Cain _ who pitched a perfect game in June against Houston.
Max Scherzer gets the ball for the slumping Tigers, who are hitting .165 in the Series after getting shut out in each of the past two games.
The only major league team to overcome a 3-0 deficit in the postseason was the 2004 Boston Red Sox, who rallied past the rival New York Yankees in the AL championship series.
Take nothing away from the Giants’ pitchers, who have certainly been sublime. But let’s be honest, unless Detroit can mount a major comeback, this Series will go down as a dud.
