Tigers come up empty again, Giants still up 2-0 in 5th

We're heading to the fifth inning, and the Detroit Tigers are still looking for their first lead in this World Series. Miguel Cabrera led off the bottom of the fourth, and hit a soft little liner to second baseman Marco Scutaro. Ryan Vogelsong struck out Prince Fielder (which seemed odd) and walked Delmon Young (which seemed odder). But yet another Tiger rally ended with a ground ball, as Andy Dirks hit an easy one to Scutaro.

Meanwhile, just one shaky inning has undone Anibal Sanchez. He faced only four Tigers in the first inning, three in the third, and four in the fourth; the only two debits in those innings were harmless singles. But of course there was that tough second inning, when his control deserted him and he gave up a couple of runs. Otherwise, though, Sánchez has been outstanding. He's thrown 74 pitches in those four innings, though, and can't be expected to pitch much beyond the sixth.

And it's still Giants 2, Tigers 0.
