Giants Blank Cardinals, Will Face Tigers in World Series

Early deficit too much for St. Louis to handle


San Francisco Giants merchandise The San Francisco Giants didn’t waste much time on Monday night handling the St. Louis Cardinals, and the city by the bay is on its way to the World Series for the second time in three seasons. The Giants jumped out to a commanding 7-0 lead by the third inning, knocking Cardinals’ starting pitcher Kyle Lohse out early. Giants’ starter Matt Cain pitched a gem, allowing just five hits over 5 2/3 innings of work before turning things over to his bullpen to seal the deal. San Francisco’s offense would add 2 more runs in the 7 th and 8 th innings and shut out the defending world champions 9-0, finishing the game in a blinding rainstorm.

The Giants will now move on to face the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night in the 108 th World Series. The Giants last won the series in 2010, which was their first world title since moving to San Francisco in 1958. Detroit last won in 1984, and last went to the World Series in 2006 as a Wild Card team. The Tigers will start ace Justin Verlander when the club takes the field in San Francisco Wednesday evening; the Cardinals have not made a decision on who will start Game One for their club.
