The San Francisco Giants are extremely close to getting the brooms out, they took a commanding 3-0 lead over the Detroit Tigers by winning Game 3, 2-0.
The Giants were once against paced by some great pitching on the mound as Ryan Vogelsong, Tim Lincecum and Sergio Romo combined to shutout the struggling Tigers lineup.
The Tigers got a quality outing from starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez who gave up the two runs but also went seven innings strong and fanned eight batters. In total, the Tigers left five runners stranded as the Tigers opportunities were few and far between to drive in runs.
The Giants go for the sweep Sunday night with Matt Cain on the mound in Game 4 as the Tigers will start Max Scherzer to stave off elimination.
