The hole has gotten bigger.
The San Francisco Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers 2-0 at AT&T Park to take a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-seven World Series.
Detroit had the first real chance to score in this game when Delmon Young hit a double down the left field line. Prince Fielder tried to score all the way from first base on the play, but he was thrown out at the plate to keep the game scoreless.
Giants starter Madison Bumgarner pitched seven scoreless innings and struck out a postseason career-best eight. Doug Fister took the loss for Detroit after giving up a hit to Hunter Pence to start the seventh inning. Pence would later score on a Brandon Crawford double-play groundout with Drew Smyly on the mound. Pence added the second Giants run the next inning with a sacrifice fly.
The series moves to Detroit with Game Three set for Saturday night. Anibal Sanchez will start for Detroit against Ryan Vogelsong for San Francisco.
