2012 World Series: Solid Shutout Pitching Combined With Manufactured Runs Give Giants 2-0 Series Lead

At San Francisco:

Madison Bumgarner (that the old MadBum himself above) pitched seven solid innings of two-hit, two-walk, eight-strikeout shutout ball, while  Gregor Blanco's single in the seventh inning trickled a few inches inside fair territory, setting up Brandon Crawford's run-scoring double-play, then Hunter Pence hit a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning to deliver  the insurance run as the San Francisco Giants took a two-games-to-none lead in the World Series following their 2-0 game-two Thursday home victory over the Detroit Tigers.  The Series will resume on Saturday at Detroit with Ryan Vogelsong set to start on the mound for the Giants while Anibal Sanchez will start for the Tigers, who are now in a must-win situation.
