Tigers vs Giants World Series Updates:
It's a face off between the Detroit Tigers and the San Francisco Giants in the 2012 World Series. It's a best of seven games series that will determine this year's best team in Major League baseball. It would be interesting to know how the teams are doing in terms of their strengths and weaknesses.
Although the best way to learn about them would be to watch the teams in action, here are a few key points about the Tigers and the Giants:
Starting Pitching - The Detroit Tigers normally fields their best man, Justin Verlander. He is said to be pitching as well as he ever has this October. Justin Verlander is said to be available for a minimum of two games in the series. Aside from him, the Tigers also have three more assets: Doug Fister, Miami import Anibal Sanchez, Max Scherzer – hailed as the strikeout wizard.
The San Francisco Giants on the other hand, are blessed with a better and stronger pitching staff. Aside from Matt Cain, the team's starting lineup also includes Madison Bumgarner and Tim Lincecum as well as Barry Zito.
Offense - When it comes to team offense, the Tigers have an advantage. The Detroit Tigers has Miguel Cabrera who is considered as the most dangerous baseball hitter of the season. The Giants, on the other hand, have their own secret weapon, the Blockbuster, Marco Scutaro. Moreover, the Giants, have a hefty and slugging third baseman in Pablo "Kung Fu Panda" Sandoval.
Game One for the Giants - San Francisco Giants Pablo Sandoval hit a spectacular three home runs on October 24 giving the team their first victory in the World Series. They won against the Tigers 8-3. The Venezuelan born Sandoval hit a solo shot in the first inning, a two-run blast in the third and succeeded with a solo homer in the fifth. Sandoval is the fourth player in history to hit three home runs in one MLB championship showcase. The feat that Pablo Sandoval pulled elevates him to the status of Babe Ruth -- who did it twice -- Reggie Jackson and Albert Pujols.
Who's Hungrier for the Win?
The San Francisco Giants are coming into the championships battle-hardened and are hungry enough for their second title in three years. They won it all two years ago in 2010.
The Giants will also be hosting game two tonight, October 25. The Detroit Tigers, will come in with their fangs bared and will be sending Doug Fisher to the mound.
