What the hell, right?
The San Francisco Giants pitchers are doing to Detroit hitters in the World Serious what Tigers pitchers did to Yankee batters in the ALCS.
That is, shut them down.
Game 3 box score:
Oh, yes – and the pitching line:
Note especially Tim Lincecum’s stats. The Freak has submitted two commanding performances in the Serious of 2 1/3 innings with no runs and no hits.
Last night he shrugged off a walk in the 7th and an error in the 8th (by Brendan Crawford, who’d just been jinxed by the Fox announcers’ noting that he hadn’t committed an error all postseason).
Regardless, the Tigers wound up being shut out for the second time in a row. That hasn’t happened in a World Serious since 1919 – and then the White/Black Sox were in the tank.
The Tigers? Last night they just looked like their tank had run out.
