Tigers, Giants heading to extra innings tied 3-3

The Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants are tied 3-3 in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series, and they are now going to extra innings.

San Francisco took a 1-0 lead in the second inning thanks to Brandon Belt's triple, which scored Hunter Pence from second base. Miguel Cabrera got the Tigers on the board with a two-run home run in the bottom of the third; those were the first runs scored by Detroit since Game 1.

The Giants came back to take a 3-2 lead on Buster Posey's two-run home run in the sixth inning, but they did not have that lead for long, as Delmon Young tied things up with a solo home run in the bottom half of the sixth.

Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer pitched 6-1/3 innings and struck out eight while walking one. He gave up seven hits and was responsible for all three San Francisco runs. Giants starter Matt Cain went seven innings, striking out five and walking two. He gave up five hits.

Neither team has a hit since the starting pitchers were replaced.

Tigers, Giants tied 3-3 in Game 4

The San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers are tied 3-3 after the first six innings of Game 4 of the 2012 World Series. Home runs have been a big story so far, with the teams combining to hit three.

The Giants scored the first run of the game when Brandon Belt knocked in Hunter Pence with a triple in the second inning, but Miguel Cabrera responded with a two-run home run in the third. The Giants were held scoreless until the top of the sixth, when Buster Posey hit a two-run home run of his own. That homer gave San Francisco a 3-2 lead, which would prove to be short-lived. Tigers slugger Delmon Young evened the score with a solo home run in the bottom half of the sixth.

Detroit starting pitcher Max Scherzer has eight strikeouts and one walk through six innings of work while allowing six hits. Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain has four strikeouts to go with two walks, and he has allowed five hits.

Tigers grab 2-1 lead over Giants in Game 4

The Detroit Tigers have a 2-1 lead over the San Francisco Giants through the first three innings of Game 4 of the 2012 World Series. Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the third, which gave the Tigers their first runs since Game 1 of the series. The home run scored Austin Jackson, who had walked earlier in the inning.

The Giants got their run off a triple by Brandon Belt in the second inning.

Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain has limited Detroit to just two hits thus far -- a single by Delmon Young to lead off the bottom of the second, and the aforementioned home run by Cabrera. Cain has one strikeout and two walks.

Detroit starting pitcher Max Scherzer has three strikeouts, but he has allowed four hits. San Francisco threatened with runners at the corners in the top of the third, but Scherzer and the Tigers were able to escape that situation without surrendering any more runs.
