Wow...Verlander is hittable (even by Zito who got an RBI!!!), Panda joins the 3-post-season-homers-in-one-game crowd (alongside Pujols, the Babe & the Reg), and Scoots ties the all-time Giants' post-season hitting record....

These guys kick ass.

I couldn't watch the game but I'm very disappointed. I think that maybe the Tigers underestimated the Giants and the heat they would have coming off a win just a couple of days ago. But from what I've read online and seen in highlights, Verlander looked either nervous or lacked confidence from the get-go. Which is an awful thing to see in any pitcher. Here's hoping the Tigers show up to play Game 2

And to quote my cousin, "This just in, the Tigers missed their flight to San Francisco. The Lions were in town being dumb, so they filled in. Now back to the broadcast"

Yeah, it seemed like Verlander started falling apart when Detroit's batting coach approached the mound (can't remember his name). There was a laugh, a stern look, and then an outside fastball for Panda's second tater...not a good idea to approach a star pitcher in a WS situation when it's only 2-0 and one on base. Best of luck tomorrow, though.

Easily JV's worst game all year. Seems like that (un)lucky bounce off third got into everyone's head. Watching Young in LF makes me want to cry. The Giants just kept on driving with all the momentum they had coming off the NLCS. I'm calling the game tonight to be the deciding moment for the WS. If the Tigers can get it together and bounce back they will still have a chance to take it all.

I don't think it was his worst outing. I think he had 2 bad games previously and in one he got hit more often (IIRC).

Tigers batters need to be more patient. The home run hitters were taking swings on some bad pitches.

SF hitters were certainly doing well, even on some not-so-juicy throws.

The lucky bounce off third base didn't help Verlander's cause either. Kept the inning going with 2 outs.

That game gave me a boner. Hopefully tonight's game does as well.

Wow...whatever Bummy worked on in the last week certainly paid off tonight. 8 K's with 2 hits and a big, fat 0 ER's. I think Detroit's RP problems are starting to creep up though, because Fister pitched just as well (though the higher pitch count forced relievers to come in earlier).

The Giants certainly are doing everything right that they can. Tigers look so rattled at the plate. Poor Drew looked like he was about to cry on the mound. They definitely were improved from game one. Still have more to go but most of my hope is now lost. Sad face.

Giants have played very well. They got most of the "luck" in the two games so far and look to be having a good time. Tigers have to relax and be a bit more patient at the plate if they want to win this. I think (hope) that coming home to Comerica will help them do these things.

If they had held Fielder at third, the whole game would have changed. Now I'm not saying I would have done that, due to the poor pick-up off the wall, but the sweet relay from LF picked him off. Better to have the runners on with nobody out than risk losing that man on third and having that extra out. Or maybe if Fielder had slid head first and reached out with his arm... With his shape he probably would have just rolled home.

I enjoyed last night much more. Good close game with some good pitching. I'd like to see more balls get put in play though.

You have got to hold Fielder at third. I mean seriously a 275 pound man scoring from first on a double? With no out you have got to be 100% possitive that there won't even be a play at the plate. It helped my Giants and **** happens and you got to play through it if you're the Tigers, but thy was bad.
