World Series 2012
The temperature will be chillier and the Detroit Tigers are hoping home field will cool off the San Francisco Giants in the World Series soon.
Tigers fans are left to wonder what this series might have looked like if a game turning, crucial play in the 2nd inning of game two never happened.
San Francisco’s Madison Bumgarner and Detroit’s Doug Fister matched each other through six innings, and the Tigers and Giants were tied 0-0 in World Series Game 2 on Thursday night.
The Giants’ 8-3 win over the Detroit Tigers set a record low television rating for a World Series opener.
Great start for Madison Bumgarner, who really struggled during the NL playoffs.
Pablo Sandoval had more than 300 text messages on his phone when he woke up Thursday morning. Players from around major league baseball, including the rival Dodgers’ Matt Kemp, acknowledged his accomplishment on social media.
While Pablo Sandoval didn’t play a big part in the San Francisco Giants’ World Series run two years ago, he’s already left his mark on this one.
I understand that the prevailing wisdom is that the Tigers’ layoff after their sweep of the Yankees led to their lackluster performance in game one of the World Series.
Jose Valverde started the postseason with a scoreless inning and a save against Oakland. Since then, his ERA is 48.60.
Barry Zito is playing his part in this World Series, all right.
