There was a lot of debate about which team would have the leg up with Detroit being on so much rest and the Giants going seven games in the NLCS, but the Giants have just maintained their terrific momentum.
Can Detroit stay alive?
San Francisco will have ace Matt Cain on the hill in Game Four. Cain pitched in Game Seven of the NLCS, so he hasn’t pitched yet in this series.
Madison Bumgarner and Ryan Vogelsong have helped lead the Giants pitching staff to two straight shut outs of the Tigers. Interestingly, Cain has never matched up against the Tigers in his big league career.
Cain has established himself as one of the best pitchers in the majors, and this is a real spot for him to shine. The Giants offense has done just enough the last couple games. Pablo Sandoval and Marco Scutaro have been the hitting heroes of the postseason so far for the Giants.
Some speculated that Detroit might throw Justin Verlander on short rest in this one, but the Tigers will go with Max Scherzer. Scherzer may not have the same track record as Verlander, but he’s been excellent of late.
He has a dazzling 0.60 ERA in his last three starts. On the other hand, he is just 1-3 with a 5.1 ERA against the Giants in his career. The Tigers have only managed three runs in three games of the World Series.
This lineup was up and down during the regular season, and they have obviously picked a bad team to hit a major slump. Prince Fielder is now hitting just .100 in the playoffs.
The bottom of the Tigers order hasn’t been productive at all. They’ll have to snap out of their offensive funk very quickly if they want to get much done against a pitcher like Matt Cain.
How much fight do the Tigers have in them? I expect this to be another pitcher’s duel. Look for a close low scoring game.
