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.
