The Majors Detroit:
San Francisco Giants
St. Louis Cardinals
New York Yankees
San Francisco Giants’ Madison Bumgarner was looking for a turn- around performance after getting lit up for six runs against the St. Louis Cardinals 12 days ago. He got that, and he came up big. Bumgarner went seven strong innings of 2- hit ball, while striking out eight Tigers batters and holding them scoreless.
Detroit Tigers’ starting pitcher Doug Fister continued his postseason dominance. Fister gave up 1- earned run over six innings, while striking out 3. He has given up a total of three runs over 19.1 innings. However, he has yet to factor into a winning decision.
In the second, Doug Fister gave his team quite the scare when he took a linedrive off the side of his head, Tigers’ medical trainer Kevin Rand and team manger Jim Leyland came out to speak with the right hander to determine if he was ok. After a few warmup pitches, he checked out o.k., and continued with the game.
In the 7th inning, Hunter Pence singled off of Doug Fister into leftfield. Tigers’ manager Jim Leyland w...

For a while, there was every reason to believe the Giants would look forward to having Madison Bumgarner start in the playoffs. Bumgarner was a very good starting pitcher, and teams like to have very good starting pitchers start for them come playoff time. Then Bumgarner started to wear down, or — if you don’t like that explanation — Bumgarner just started pitching a lot worse...
In Game 2 of the World Series, Doug Fister was having a pretty good game for himself with the Detroit Tigers, but he almost got a scare after a line drive hit by San Francisco Giants‘ Gregor Blanco, as the ball hits Fister right in the head.

This was the Madison Bumgarner that the Giants were waiting to see this postseason.
After being 0-2 with an 11.25 ERA in his two postseason starts, the Giants wondered when Bumgarner was going to pitch the way he was pitching in the postseason two years ago.
They found Bumgarner at his best Thursday night. He pitched seven shutout innings in setting the tone in the Giants’ 2-0...

And just to reiterate. No hockey.

SAN FRANCISCO -- It is hard to think of a 23-year-old turning back the clock, but that is exactly what Madison Bumgarner did Thursday night.

I tried to tell you guys this morning that great things besides baseball happen year after year at the World Series. This morning it was a chick putting Pablo Sandoval’s 3rd home run ball down her pants before being arrested.
Now comes this Fox guy, Paul Robins, taking a bird deuce to the side of the head and on his coat. It wasn’t exactly a Doug Fister shot to the head, but...
The Giants beat the Tigers 2-0 in the World Series last night, taking a 2-0 series lead. While that's not necessarily an insurmountable lead, some Tigers fans are panicking with Ryan Vogelsong starting game three and Matt Cain starting game four for the Giants.

Game three won't be until Saturday, so we've got a little bit of a lull in the schedule...
