Fun Facts: World Series Game 2

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Can the Tigers even the series tonight, or will they go back to Detroit down 2-0?

PROGRAMMING NOTE: If you're looking for something else to do during tonight's game, I'll be appearing on Brewers Weekly on WTMJ in Milwaukee with Dan O'Donnell around 8:40 in one of my first radio appearances of the offseason. Listen in live or check back later for the archived audio.

As someone who predicted the Tigers to win this series in five games, my back is kind of against the wall here.

Game 2 of the World Series will take place at 7 pm tonight in San Francisco with Madison Bumgarner (3.37 ERA, 3.50 FIP regular season, 11.25 ERA, 7.22 FIP postseason) and the Giants (leading the series 1-0) taking on Doug Fister (3.45 ERA, 3.42 FIP regular season, 1.35 ERA, 2.94 FIP postseason) and the Tigers.

Fun facts:

  • Bumgarner is pitching tonight on ten days' rest, having last pitched in Game 1 of the NLCS on October 14. He's still only 23 years old but tonight will be his seventh career postseason appearance and sixth start.
  • Doug Fister is also making career playoff start #6 tonight, but only his third against a non-Yankees opponent.
  • Marco Scutaro had two hits last night and now needs just six more to tie the all time postseason record.
  • Pablo Sandoval has six career postseason home runs, all hit this season. That's more than the Giants career postseason totals for Jeff Kent (5), Mel Ott (4) and Willie Mays (1).
  • Delmon Young is the Tigers' career leader with seven postseason home runs. Miguel Cabrera is the franchise career leader with 17 walks, and six intentional walks.
  • The Cardinals and Yankees are not participating in this series.

Tonight's game is on Fox.
