      === Giants continue to blank Tigers after six innings of Game 3 ===
 
 Detroit,  MI  (Sports Network)  -  The  San  Francisco Giants'  pitchers  keep
 getting the best of the Detroit Tigers' hitters during this World Series, with
 the  National  League champions working on  a shutout while holding a 2-0 lead
 after six innings of Game 3.
 
 The  Tigers  mustered just  three runs and  10 hits in  dropping the first two
 matchups  of the  Fall Classic, both of  which were held in San Francisco, but
 haven't fared any better so far as the series shifted back to Detroit. They've
 recorded  five  hits and four walks  against the combination of Ryan Vogelsong
 and  Tim  Lincecum, but have stranded  seven baserunners and gone 0-for-4 with
 men in scoring position.
 
 Vogelsong  threw the  first 5 2/3 innings before being removed after a two-out
 walk  to Andy  Dirks, with Lincecum coming  on to retire Delmon Young and keep
 the Tigers off the board.
 
 San Francisco's only runs off Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez, who's struck out
 seven through the first six frames, came in the top of the second.
 
 Hunter  Pence drew  a leadoff  walk and  advanced to  third on  a stolen  base
 followed  by a wild pitch, then crossed the plate when Gregor Blanco smacked a
 triple  into  the  gap  in  right-center field.  Two  batters  later,  Brandon
 Crawford  delivered  a single to  center field that  brought home Blanco for a
 2-0 advantage.
 
 Detroit put runners on first and second with one out in both the bottom of the
 first and third, but Vogelsong induced double-play grounders to Prince Fielder
 and Quintin Berry, respectively, to end each threat.
 
 The Tigers would later load the bases with one out in the fifth on consecutive
 singles  by Omar Infante and Austin Jackson and a free pass to Austin Jackson,
 but again came away empty. Vogelsong struck out Berry before getting AL Triple
 Crown winner Miguel Cabrera to pop up for the final out.
