Next game on Friday, October 5.


Alex Gordon nailed a long double over the center fielder's head and Alcides Escobar, who had a good read on the hit, doesn't even slow up to see if it's caught. He scores for the second time to put K.C. up 2-0.


They're setting 'em down in Game 3. Tim Hudson (64 pitches) has retired 11 straight batters, Jeremy Guthrie (67 pitches) has 10 in a row.


Cabrera had ankle surgery

In addition to bone spurs, Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera had a stress fracture in the navicular bone that the Tigers were not aware of and he needed screws placed in his right ankle. He will be re-evaluated in three months. Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski says the team doesn't know if Cabrera will be ready for the start of the season.


Defense by Lorenzo

Ned Yost's decision to move Lorenzo Cain to right field from center is paying off in Game 3. So far, Cain has made a pair of sliding catches in the first three innings.

Lorenzo Cain had 10 defensive runs saved in right field this season, tied for fifth-most in MLB, and he only played 388 ⅓ innings in right.

pence streak reaches 16

With Hunter Pence's second-inning single, he ran his postseason streak of reaching base to 16 consecutive games, which ties him with Buster Posey (2010-12) for third all-time in Giants' history.


Hunter Pence's caught stealing hurts even more as Brandon Belt singles to center. Pence surely would have tied up the game.


Tim Hudson got some defensive help in the second inning -- a diving catch from Travis Ishikawa in left and a 4-6-3 double play.


After grounding into a double play, Jarrod Dyson is now 0-for-8 this postseason. The outfielder only grounded into five double plays during the regular season.


Cross That Off The Bucket List

He's waited a long time, but now Tim Hudson has his shot. If he were to win tonight, the Giants pitcher would be the third oldest starter (39 years, 102 days) to win his first World Series game.
