How good was Zimmermann? He needed just 67 pitches to get through the six frames. And after a leadoff single by Andy Dirks on the second pitch of the game, Zimmermann set down the next 18 batters he faced — 13 of them on ground-ball outs.
With his beefy frame and prodigious power, Prince Fielder doesn't look like a player who can simply blend into a lineup.
Where has the time gone?
Anibal Sanchez hadn't gone anywhere, really, and yet here he was getting a big "welcome back" from Detroit Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski.
Even before Miguel Cabrera made the major leagues, coaches and scouts in Venezuela were predicting he would be a big star.
Jim Leyland insisted throughout the latter part of the season that there would be a time and a place to discuss his managing future.
The Tigers just got some help from the elements _ perhaps their first break of the entire Series.
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.
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.
When the San Francisco Giants scored twice off Detroit's Anibal Sanchez in the second inning of Game 3 of the World Series, Tigers fans at Comerica Park immediately grew edgy.
"He didn't seem scared," first baseman Prince Fielder said. "He definitely showed some toughness."
"It is unfortunate, but we played as hard as we could. Losing to the World Series champions isn't too bad," Fielder said. "We played good baseball, but they just beat us. We had a great season to get to the playoffs, and we played well to get to the World Series. You just don't get to write your own script."
