Tigers vs. Giants, 2012 World Series Game 2: Game time, TV schedule, lineups and more

Elsa

Detroit looks to even World Series Thursday night.

The Detroit Tigers will attempt to rebound from their blowout loss in Game 1 of the 2012 World Series on Thursday night when they again face the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The Tigers dropped Game 1, 8-3, despite having Justin Verlander pitching, and will have to cool off the red-hot Giants if they are to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole.

Doug Fister will take the mound for the Tigers in Game 2. The right-hander has made two starts in the 2012 postseason and has yet to factor in a decision despite giving up just two earned runs in 13 innings pitched. In his last start against the New York Yankees, he threw 6 scoreless innings while scattering six hits and striking out five. Fister has never faced San Francisco in the regular season or postseason.

San Francisco will hand the ball to Madison Bumgarner, a lefty who has struggled in his two previous starts this postseason. Bumgarner is 0-2 in October, giving up four runs in 4 innings against Cincinnati in the Division Series and following that with a 3-inning, six-run outing against St. Louis in the National League Championship Series. He did face the Tigers last season, allowing just one run and striking out nine in 7 innings in a July 1 start.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:07 ET. Fox will handle television coverage, and ESPN Radio will have the broadcast.
