With Game 1 in the books and the San Francisco Giants holding serve by winning last night, thanks in big part to Pablo Sandoval's three home runs, the 2012 World Series has the potential to be an instant classic. Even though the final of Game 1 was not close, there is a lot of baseball left to play and the Tigers will not go away quietly.
The Tigers have had a strong pitching staff all postseason and runs probably will not come as easy as they did last night. Detroit still has Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera and power hitter Prince Fielder to give Giants pitchers nightmares.
The Giants certainly have the momentum heading into Game 2 with the win over Justin Verlander but these are some reasons I see this series going seven and becoming an instant classic.
