The Giants are one win away from sweeping the Tigers in the 2012 World Series. And they are off to a quick start in Game 4.

Max Scherzer struck out Buster Posey looking to begin the top of the second inning, but Hunter Pence followed with a ground-rule double to the left center field gap. Brandon Belt then tripled to the right field corner which plated Pence and gave the Giants an early 1-0 lead. Belt was 0-for-10 with six strikeouts in the series prior to the triple.

The Giants are 9-1 when scoring first this postseason. Given how much the Tigers’ offense has struggled this series, even a 1-0 deficit suddenly seems steep.

    It’s early in the game and anything can happen. Still, I’m looking forward to a strong performance from Giants’ pitching and a few runs manufactured by SF’s bats. On the other hand, the Tigers just need to wake up and remember this is the World Series.

    I’m just hoping that the known bigot and infamous anti Semite, Delmon Young, is denied world series glory. My interest in this world series begins and ends with that.

      Yeah, we get it. You don’t have to keep saying it. You hope they all lose b/c they have a contract w/ one loser. Duly noted. Ok?

      If this is your only interest in the World Series, you’re clearly not a baseball fan. As for Delmon Young, yeah, he’s had a history of the obnoxious. But he’s also been the Tigers’ best hitter for four games. Maybe 2013 will give you more reason to get out of your rut. Brian Cashman does a good job…

    The Tigers strike! Cabrera hits a two run homer! It’s about time!

      Boom!

      Well done Miguel! Now it’s time for the Gigantes to show what they’re made of!

      I was about to comment that it felt like the game, at 1-0 Giants was over. Nice to see the Tigers put up a fight.

    Miggy awakens from his slumber. Maybe he’s going to pull a Pujols and show those entitled media types whose boss.

      Or strike out looking at an 89 mph fastball right down the middle.

      Either way.
