Despite a very good pitching performance by Doug Fister, the Detroit Tigers were defeated tonight 2-0 by the surging San Francisco Giants.

The simple math does not do them many favors. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, 50 teams have taken a 2-0 lead in a best-of-seven World Series. Ultimately, 40 of them went on to win the title. The last team to erase a 2-0 deficit in the Fall Classic were the 1996 New York Yankees.

That means, to bring home their first championship in 28 years, the Tigers have to overcome long odds and a white-hot opponent. Unfortunately, there are players who have not performed thus far and appear likely to wear goat horns if Detroit can't rally.
