The San Francisco Giants are one win away from their second World Series title in the last three seasons after defeating the Detroit Tigers in Game 3 Saturday night to take a 3-0 series lead.
That magical fourth win could come on Sunday night when Max Scherzer and Matt Cain take the mound for their respective teams. Scherzer will try to keep the Tigers alive to see another day, while Cain will try to lock up the crown early.
The Tigers haven’t been able to do anything against the Giants pitching staff during the World Series and were held scoreless in Game 2 and Game 3. In order for there to be a Game 5, Detroit will have to plate some runs.
The Giants, though, are in the driver’s seat, and as long as they can keep Detroit off-balance offensively and replicate what their pitchers have done on the mound recently, the trophy is all theirs.
Let’s take a look at the biggest matchups to watch in Game 4 of the World Series.
