Michael Morse rewarded his manager for giving him a rare day off.
Allen Craig is regaining his form at the plate.
Julio Teheran has pitched well most of the season - just not against the San Francisco Giants.
Yusmeiro Petit struck out seven in four impressive innings, sending the San Francisco Giants to a 3-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.
The Giants have agreed to one-year deals with three of their five players in salary arbitration: outfielder Gregor Blanco, right-hander Yusmeiro Petit and infielder Tony Abreu.
Bailey became the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer — still the only big leaguer to toss two in a row. Bailey beat the Pirates 1-0 in Pittsburgh last Sept. 28 and got another 17 starts later.
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.
That's it. The final score is Giants 2, Tigers 0 for the second consecutive game in this World Series.
The bunt just wouldn't go foul, despite the best efforts of the Detroit players who gathered around it and tried to will it across the chalk down the third base line. It couldn't go foul, because that might have ruined the whole aura the San Francisco Giants spent two games creating on their way toward taking command of this World Series.
Gregor Blanco is chasing down line drives in left field, laying down perfect bunts and making run-saving relay throws.
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.
A Giant dose of small ball, and suddenly San Francisco finds itself in a most unique position — way ahead in a postseason series.
Angel Pagan connects on the second pitch of the game. A Giants team that finished last in homers goes on to hit three. Tim Lincecum pitches like a two-time Cy Young winner — this time, out of the bullpen.
Matt Cain tossed and turned and managed all of about four hours of sleep following his history-making gem for the Giants.
Matt Cain and his wife, Chelsea, returned to the field an hour and a half later for a few more perfect memories. They snapped photos on the mound, posing with the workers who tore it down so the dirt could be sent to the Hall of Fame.
Blanco added to his big day in the fifth with an RBI single off Alex Wood, then stole second and scored on Pence's two-out single.
"Coming off the bench, it's not that easy to do," Blanco said. "In that situation to get a pinch hit and drive one in ... you just got to be aggressive."
