Cabrera had ankle surgery

In addition to bone spurs, Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera had a stress fracture in the navicular bone that the Tigers were not aware of and he needed screws placed in his right ankle. He will be re-evaluated in three months. Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski says the team doesn't know if Cabrera will be ready for the start of the season.


Defense by Lorenzo

Ned Yost's decision to move Lorenzo Cain to right field from center is paying off in Game 3. So far, Cain has made a pair of sliding catches in the first three innings.

Lorenzo Cain had 10 defensive runs saved in right field this season, tied for fifth-most in MLB, and he only played 388 ⅓ innings in right.

pence streak reaches 16

With Hunter Pence's second-inning single, he ran his postseason streak of reaching base to 16 consecutive games, which ties him with Buster Posey (2010-12) for third all-time in Giants' history.


Hunter Pence's caught stealing hurts even more as Brandon Belt singles to center. Pence surely would have tied up the game.


Tim Hudson got some defensive help in the second inning -- a diving catch from Travis Ishikawa in left and a 4-6-3 double play.


After grounding into a double play, Jarrod Dyson is now 0-for-8 this postseason. The outfielder only grounded into five double plays during the regular season.


Cross That Off The Bucket List

He's waited a long time, but now Tim Hudson has his shot. If he were to win tonight, the Giants pitcher would be the third oldest starter (39 years, 102 days) to win his first World Series game.

royals on top early

Kansas City strikes first in San Francisco -- Lorenzo Cain's ground out drives in Alcides Escoba, and the Royals lead 1-0. K.C. scores in the first inning in consecutive World Series games for the first time since Games 3 and 4 in 1980.


Escobar greets Hudson with 2B

And Alcides Escobar goes up there hacking, hitting the first pitch from Tim Hudson to the corner of left-field wall. The last lead-off double of the World Series was Jimmy Rollins in 2008's Game 4.
