Giants One Win Away From Championship
Posted by Michael Mintos on Oct 28, 2012 - 1:26:55 PM

DETROIT—The San Francisco Giants won their sixth consecutive playoff game and second straight shutout on Saturday, defeating the Detroit Tigers 2-0 in Game 3 of the World Series. The performance silenced the jam-packed crowd in Comerica Park in Detroit and pushed the Giants closer to their second title in three years.

The Giants scored both runs in an eventful second inning. Left fielder, Gregor Blanco played a huge role again in the series, hitting an RBI triple that scored right fielder Hunter Pence. Two batters later, shortstop Brandon Crawford singled to center, bringing Blanco to the plate for the team’s second run.


The San Francisco pitching staff proved to be unstoppable again with a stifling array of dominant pitchers. Starter Ryan Vogelsong allowed five hits over five innings and got out of a tense fifth inning by forcing Detroit’s Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera to pop up with the bases loaded.

Tim Lincecum, a starting pitcher who has been used as a reliever during the playoffs, led the bullpen in closing out the Tigers. Lincecum and Sergio Romo didn’t allow another hit to make sure that Detroit wouldn’t stage a comeback. The Giants will see if they can hold the Tigers down for one more game on Sunday in Detroit. If they do, they’ll be celebrating a series sweep and a world championship in the cold, midwestern night.
