Prince Fielder hasn't provided the meaty production the Detroit Tigers expect.
''Obviously they're not going to throw us center cuts all day,'' the burly slugger said.
His first two World Series games after signing a $214 million contract have been forgettable. No RBIs. One hit, a single at that.
And he was thrown out at the plate in the second inning Thursday night when he tried to score from first base on a double, a key play in the Tigers' 2-0 loss to San Francisco that sent Detroit home with a 2-0 World Series deficit.
''Once again when we hit the ball hard they made good plays,'' Fielder said. ''That combination is pretty deadly.''
Fielder is fizzling, hitting just .205 for the Tigers this postseason with one home run and three RBIs in 11 games. Those meager numbers have dropped him to .198 (19 for 96) in his postseason career. Quite a contrast to his first regular season in Motown, when he batted .313 with 30 homers and 108 RBIs.
