SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants are halfway to a World Series title after shutting down the Detroit Tigers 2-0 Thursday for a two games-to-none series lead.
Madison Bumgarner outdueled Detroit’s Doug Fister in a classic pitchers’ duel. Bumgarner and two relievers combined on a two-hit shutout. Bumgarner struck out eight in his seven innings. Santiago Casilla and Sergio Romo finished the gem.
The Tigers were shut out just twice in the 162-game regular season. They now have been blanked twice in the postseason.
Today is a travel day. The series resumes Saturday night in Detroit. The Giants send out 14-game winner Ryan Vogelsong against Anibel Sanchez.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis manager Mike Matheny says he hasn’t slept much since the Cardinals were knocked out of the playoffs on Monday. The Cards dropped the last three games of the NLCS to the San Francisco Giants by a combined score of 20-1. Matheny says it’s somewhat reassuring to see Barry Zito carve up the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the World Series, just as he did the Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLCS.
