Giants in position for second World Championship


San Francisco Giants merchandise After Saturday night's contest, the San Francisco Giants are on the cusp of winning their second World Championship in three years. The Giants now lead the series 3-0 after shutting out the Detroit Tigers back to back in Games Two and Three. The Giants are the first team since the 1966 Baltimore Orioles to record consecutive shutouts in a World Series.

Giant's pitching ace Matt Cain will face Detroit’s Max Scherzer in Game Four tonight. Cain is currently 2-2 in the postseason with a 3.52 ERA while Scherzer has a 1-0 record and .82 ERA in his eleven innings of postseason play.

While Detroit may have their strongest pitcher on the mound tonight, the challenge they face to win the series may be insurmountable. In the past 107 years of the World Series play no team has come back from a 0-3 game deficit.

And the Giants are red-hot, both on the field and on the mound. The Giants pitching has surrendered only three runs throughout the course of the Series. The Tigers in comparison have given up twelve runs.

In 2010 the Giants finished the Fall Classic with a 2.38 ERA through five games. This year the Giants enter the Series' fourth game with a 1.0 ERA.
