Giants beat Cards…play Tigers in WS

Posted on October 23, 2012 in Professional Sports News, Sports News - Yooper & Michigan.

The Detroit Tigers begin the World Series on the road in San Francisco tomorrow after the Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-0 last night in Game Seven of the NLCS.

Yesterday, Detroit took part in their final scrimmage against players from their fall instructional league as both pitchers and hitters try to stay sharp for the Fall Classic.

Manager Jim Leyland has finalized his rotation for the series against San Francisco with Justin Verlander set to go in Game One, Doug Fister taking the mound in Game Two, Anibal Sanchez getting the nod in Game Three and Max Scherzer starting Game Four.

Hunter Pence drove in two during a five-run third inning for San Francisco.

Matt Cain threw five-and-two-thirds shutout innings to earn the victory.

Marco Scutaro was named MVP after smacking 14 hits in the series.

The Giants have won six straight games when facing elimination this postseason.

Kyle Lohse (lowsh) was lit up for five runs and six hits in only two-plus innings to take the loss.

St. Louis blew a three-games-to-one lead in the best-of-seven series.
