World Series 2012: Tigers pitchers practice bunting

Al Bello

Detroit Tigers pitchers spent Monday's workout practicing their bunting.

Detroit Tigers pitchers took some time off from the mound and practiced their bunting during Monday's workout as they prepare to play the San Francisco Giants in the 2012 World Series.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland told Anthony French of the Detroit Free Press that he doesn't expect a lot offensively from his pitchers but would like to see them "get a bunt down and see some pitches come in."

Tigers likely starter for Game 2 of the World Series, Doug Fister, also said that the workouts are keeping them in line so they don't fall into a lull during their layoff. Detroit hasn't played since Oct. 18, when they completed the sweep of the Yankees in the ALCS.

Detroit will face San Francisco in the World Series. The Giants defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 9-0, in Game 7 of the NLCS on Monday. The Giants came back from 3-1 series deficit to win three games in a row to earn a spot opposite the Tigers in the World Series.
