Giants vs. Tigers score: Miguel Cabrera gives Detroit 2-1 lead

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.
