  5. Miggy unstoppable, but what about Tigers?

    David Schoenfield

  7. Random thoughts heading into Game 4

    David Schoenfield

    At this point, there isn't a whole lot to say. The San Francisco Giants' pitching has been spectacular, their defense has been terrific and the Detroit Tigers' bats are as cold as the Michigan weather. But the series isn't over, not with Max Scherzer...

    The last few innings won't exactly go down as textbook October baseball, but the Detroit Tigers will happily take the 5-4 walk-off win over the A's, the 2-0 series lead and the plane ride to Oakland knowing they need to win only one of three games. ...
