World Series Game 1 Preview; Tigers Vs. Giants

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Jim Leyland and the Detroit Tigers found out the hard way that rest means rust in the World Series.

Six years ago, their last Series appearance, they lounged around for nearly a week before getting wiped out by St. Louis.

This time, while once again waiting for the National League opponent to be decided, they stayed busy by working on bunts, playing against their instructional league team and letting ace Justin Verlander throw to hitters.

“Well, we just tried to come up with something,” Leyland said Tuesday. “It wasn’t like in 2006, where some people would indicate we sat around happy to get there, not doing anything, eating bon-bons.”
