Tigers creating chances but can’t break through against Giants in World Series Game 3

The Tigers finally sprang to life in the bottom of the fifth inning of this World Series Game 3, loading the bases with one out against San Francisco starter Ryan Vogelsong. But Quintin Berry struck out and Miguel Cabrera popped out to shortstop Brandon Crawford, ending what looked like a major threat.

Detroit has left a whopping 11 batters on base.

And San Fran hasn’t trailed for 50 straight innings.

The Giants’ 2-0 lead is still holding up as Game 3 moves along to the bottom of the sixth inning. Vogelsong has surrendered five hits and three walks over his first five frames, but the right-hander has operated well in situations that have called for damage control.

    Hunting Tigers out in Indiyah
    Out in out in out in Indiyah….
    How many Tigers have you seen with forks and serviettes?
    Dear dear dear no dear dear dear no dear no o dear no
    Don’t care in what part of you they sink their fretwork sets
    Dear dear dear no dear dear dear no dear no o dear no
    Tigers don’t go out on rainy nights
    They don’t need to whet their appetites!
    Go hunting Tigers out in Indiyah
    Out in out in out in Indiyah….YAH!

    Timmy comes in and shuts them down. Gotta hand it to that guy. Instead of pouting about being in the pen he has been positive, and extremely useful. Kind of thing I love to see.

    Not to question dear leader Leyland, but why in the hell is Infante batting last when he has killer numbers facing Vogelsong? Different scenario if that happened. That being said, the Tigers offense is simply atrocious.

      Yankees fan here. Know how you feel.

      The Tigers are down but they’re not out. Anything can happen.

      Totally agree. Make an adjustment! He’s about the only guy hitting!

    Lot of tension in this game! Every inning has me sitting on the edge of my chair! Great pitching and fielding by the Giants…so far!

    I feel guilty because I’ve only watched one game in this series so far- it’s just that I have no investment in either team so I’m somewhat indifferent.

      some years are just like that!

    Giants do it again.

    Not in a million years would I have guessed that the prion-vectored neurological disease that struck down the Borg during the LCS might be contagious. I don’t want to take anything away from the Giants, especially not from their pitching, but what’s happened to the Tiggers’ offense is just incomprehensible to me.

      The stars have aligned for the Giants this post season. It’s funny that their strength over the last couple of years kind of struggled down the stretch this year. It made the staff bear down and work hard and you are now seeing the results. It says a lot about Righetti and staff. Plus Bochy has had the Midas touch. It’s boring for casual and non Giants (and downright sucks for Tiger) fans but they are having a historic post season. Come backs, Panda-mania, shutouts, Scutaro’s Jeter-like backup and hitting, Blanco’s amazing base hit robbing defense, and the list goes on. If Cain can have a day today it would really be historic dominance. If this were any team on the East coast or anywhere near it, everyone would be screaming dynasty. Two WS Championships in 3 years? This is going to be a very good team for the next few years!
