(AP) — A string of outstanding pitching performances has pushed the San Francisco Giants to the brink of their second World Series title in three years. They’ll turn to one of the franchise’s best postseason starters to complete that championship run with a sweep.

Matt Cain will try to close out yet another series while adding to his playoff legacy in Sunday night’s Game 4 against the Detroit Tigers.

Since facing elimination in the NL championship series, the Giants have been nearly untouchable during a franchise-best six consecutive postseason victories. The team’s pitchers have allowed four runs over 54 innings (0.67 ERA) and their starters have given up two over 38 2-3 frames (0.47).

Even with the World Series shifting to Detroit’s Comerica Park, San Francisco recorded a second straight 2-0 victory Saturday. Ryan Vogelsong, former NL Cy Young winner turned reliever Tim Lincecum and Sergio Romo combined to blank the Tigers on five hits while Gregor Blanco and Brandon Crawford drove in runs during the second inning.
