DETROIT -- Nothing is stopping them -- not even the Triple Crown winner at the plate with the bases loaded.
Armed and accelerating, the San
Francisco Giants became the first team to throw consecutive World Series
shutouts in nearly a half-century, blanking Miguel Cabrera and the
Detroit Tigers 2-0 on a chilly Saturday night for a commanding 3-0 lead.
No team has ever blown such a
huge margin in the World Series. And with the way Ryan Vogelsong, Tim
Lincecum and the Giants are pitching, it seemed unlikely the Tigers
would even score a run, yet alone win a game.
Gregor Blanco hit an RBI triple
and trotted home on Brandon Crawford's single in the second inning, and
that was ample for the Giants. Timely hits, combined with another
dominant effort on the mound and sharp defense put them close to their
second title in three years.
After playing a nearly perfect
Game 3, the Giants will turn to Mr. Perfect Game himself -- ace Matt Cain

Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Phil Coke has emerged as a key figure during the team’s playoff run this season, and one of the byproducts has been the public getting to know his cool personality. Take for instance the video above. Deadspin shared this brilliant clip with us on Friday, and it’s from an interview Coke did with MLB Network’s “Intentional Talk” with Kevin Millar...
DETROIT -- There were a lot of Hall of Famers in the house Saturday -- and a couple of award winners, too.
Hank Aaron was there to present the award named after him to Miguel Cabrera and Buster Posey as the two most outstanding offensive players in each league.
Commissioner Bud Selig was also part of the ceremony.
"Miguel joined historic company this year by winning the game...
You think of the Tigers and first and foremost you think of Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder, and Miguel Cabrera. You think of the Tigers on a day that Verlander isn’t pitching and you think of Fielder and Cabrera. There are other guys on the roster — lots of them! — and some of them are good, but Fielder and Cabrera are the big offensive guns. They’re the players the Tigers...

Game three won't be until Saturday, so we've got a little bit of a lull in the schedule...
Prior to tonight‘s game, Octavio Dotel stated the obvious. Asked about his team trailing the World Series two-games-to-none, the Tigers reliever said, “We need to win tonight.”
They didn’t win, and that puts them on the brink. With a 2-0 victory behind the pitching of Ryan Vogelsong, Tim Lincecum and Sergio Romo, the Giants are now one game away from the franchise’s seventh...
The San Francisco Giants beat the Detroit Tigers 2-0 in game three of the World Series, taking a three games to none series lead.
Saturday's game three was more of the same in comparison to Thursday's game two. The Giants pitching staff didn't exactly slice and dice the Tigers offense, but they didn't allow any runs....and at the end of the day, that's the...
