Tigers vs. Giants, 2012 World Series Game 2: Detroit's bats go cold in 2-0 loss to San Francisco

Doug Pensinger

Tigers manage just two hits Friday night.

The Detroit Tigers were blanked 2-0 by the San Francisco Giants on Friday night, falling behind 2-0 in the World Series. Giants left-handed pitcher Madison Bumgarner threw seven scoreless innings, struck out eight batters and allowed just two hits, as Detroit couldn't find any life in its offense.

And although Bumgarner's performance was impressive, the absence of Detroit's offense - which has been one of the Major League's best all season long - was just as noticeable, according to Al Beaton of SB Nation's Detroit Tigers blog, Bless You Boys.

"Infante popped up to 1st, ending what could be considered the worst offensive game of the Tigers' season. Cabrera was left on deck, the last 6 Tigers going down in order. As it was so well put in the game thread, with the Tigers' flaccid, offense, Cabrera might as well have been standing on the moon."

The series returns to Detroit for the next three games. Game 3 is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally by FOX.
