Tigers and Giants start World Series tonight

Posted on October 24, 2012 in Professional Sports News, Sports News - Yooper & Michigan.

The Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants take to the field in San Francisco for Game One of the World Series tonight. First pitch is set for 8:07 p.m.

Justin Verlander will start for Detroit, while San Francisco counters with Barry Zito in the first postseason meeting between the two teams.

The Tigers swept the Yankees in the American League Championship Series and had to wait for their opponent as the Giants came back from a 3-games-to-1 deficit to beat the St. Louis Cardinals to capture the National League pennant on Monday night.

San Francisco won the 2010 World Series, while Detroit last won the Fall Classic in 1984.
