Marco Scutaro comes through again for the Giants _ who else?
Big-time pitching by Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt.
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.
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.
Sergio Romo closes it out by throwing a called third strike past Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera.
Smart pitching. Clutch hitting. Sharp fielding. Plus an MVP Panda.
Banished to the bullpen, a two-time Cy Young Award winner has become baseball's most distinguished middle reliever.
Pablo Sandoval decided sometime long ago that he was going to swing at the first pitch of his second at-bat.
Nothing is stopping them — not even the Triple Crown winner at the plate with the bases loaded. Armed and accelerating, the San Francisco Giants became the first team to throw consecutive World Series shutouts in nearly a half-century, blanking Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers 2-0 on a chilly Saturday night for a commanding 3-0 lead.
Once again, Prince Fielder fails to come through for the Tigers.
Another squandered opportunity for the Tigers, who just can't manage to get a big hit.
The bump on Doug Fister's head from a hard line drive was much less of a concern for the Detroit Tigers' pitcher than the 2-0 hole his team needs to climb out of in the World Series.
The final score is Giants 2, Tigers 0.
Gregor Blanco is chasing down line drives in left field, laying down perfect bunts and making run-saving relay throws.
San Francisco breaks through for a run in the seventh.
"I've been watching these guys all year," San Francisco shortstop Brandon Crawford said. "They're a lot of fun to play around. They all go out there and compete, throw all their pitches for strikes. It's easy to play defense for them."
"You have to throw it all away because it could work in either team's favor," Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said. "We've been playing every day, so guys might be a little more tired, whereas they've got more rest. Then again, we've been playing, so we've got our timing, where they might not."
