First of all, the Giants are up two games on the Tigers. This puts the Tigers in a serious bind. In the last 30 years of the World Series, 13 teams have been up two games to none – all 13 of those teams have won the World Series.
That doesn’t mean that the Tigers should just give up, however – the Giants were down three games to one in the NLCS and came back to win. The Tigers are really going to be out for blood and will do anything they can to avoid being swept.
The Giants know from experience that a team can come back from a deficit. They just did it against the St. Louis Cardinals. They also know how dangerous the Tigers still are, and will try and put them away and really put a stranglehold on the series.
That is why game three will probably be the most exciting of the series so far. Whenever a team’s back is against the wall, it usually brings out the best performances. I still remember in 2005 when the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros went to extra innings in game three.
The Astros did everything they could to win because they were up against the wall. It was also one of the longest games in World Series history, which shows how both teams fought tooth and nail to win the game. Even though the Astros lost, it was still a great game.
Fans will also get to see Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera. How many more times this season will fans get to see him during this historic year?
Baseball is a great game because history can occur on any night. In this World Series history was already made when Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs in a game. So there is always a potential chance for another historic performance from a star player, or even a player that has been on the bench.
Fans should tune in and watch. There might not be much baseball left and every little bit counts.
So watch and enjoy. It’s going to be a wild ride for game three.
