DETROIT (AP) - When the San Francisco Giants scored twice off Detroit's Anibal Sanchez in the second inning of Game 3 of the World Series, Tigers fans at Comerica Park immediately grew edgy.
In this postseason, two runs can feel like 20.
After a 2-0 win over the Tigers on Saturday night, the Giants are one win from their second World Series title in three years. They're on the verge of a championship because of a terrific performance by their pitching staff, which has shut Detroit out the last two games and kept sluggers Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder from finding any sort of groove.
It's been an unpleasant reversal for the Tigers, whose own starting rotation was fabulous in the AL championship series against the New York Yankees.
