With all of the struggles surrounding the Yankees’ offense this postseason, it was no surprise to see the Tigers come up on top 8-1 in Game 4 to represent the American League in the 2012 World Series.
Max Scherzer led the way for Detroit as he pitched 5 2/3 innings and only allowed one run while striking out 10. As for C.C. Sabathia–he couldn’t make it past the fourth inning as he allowed five earned runs on 11 hits.
What’s even more impressive–seven Tigers had multi-hit games in this clincher.
Believe it or not–the Cardinals are one win away from advancing to the World Series for the second-straight season after an impressive 8-3 win over the Cardinals on Thursday.
Adam Wainwright bounced back from his disappointing performance in Game 5 of the NLDS as he pitched seven solid innings and allowed just four hits with one earned run. If St. Louis can win on Friday, they’ll square off against Detroit to determine who will be crowned 2012 World Series Champions.
In a key NFC West matchup between two of the top defenses in the NFL, the 49ers came up on top of the Seahawks in this one 13-6–with the difference maker being a touchdown pass from Alex Smith to Delaine Walker in the third quarter. Frank Gore led the way for the offense as he finished the game with 131 rushing yards and after last weekend’s blowout loss to the New York Giants–it was nice to see the 49ers bounce back in this one.
