The two big bats the Detroit Tigers have on their pay roll were silenced last night as the Tigers who are starting to face a Giant deficit fell to San Francisco 2-0 in-game 2 of the 2012 world series. In the second biggest game of their lives, both Miguel Cabrera & Prince Fielder went without a hit. The Tigers sent Doug Fister to the mound last night in-game two, he pitched well for the 6 innings he was in only giving up 1 run to the Giants who hammered the Tigers ace Justin Verlander in-game 1. The way Fister pitched the Tigers should have been able to take game 2.

Lets not forget this is the best of 7 games and we have seen too many times this season why they play more than a few games in these play offs and world series. It is the San Francisco Giants themselves who know first hand being down 2 games to nothing is not enough to stop a team from winning a series. The Giants came back to beat the Reds from a 2-0 deficit and the Tigers are certainly capable of doing the same. The Tigers offense has got to wake up and if they do this Tigers team is capable of scoring plenty of runs.

The Tigers have some players who can’t mount an offensive charge and get runs on the board quick. Cabrera is too good a hitter to do nothing for too long. Once Miguel can get it going that is when we should see Fielder follow. These two guys can get the fireworks started if they can figure out the Giants pitching. Getting shut-out in-game two in not that big a deal for the Detroit Tigers, what would be a big deal is losing 3 in a row. I don’t think the Tigers are going to let that happen, then again I have been wrong before…
