2012 World Series Game 2: Tigers vs. Giants, Thursday 10/25, 7 pm CT

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Tigers send Doug Fister to the mound to try to tie up the World Series.

There isn't a whole lot to say about this game that you probably haven't though of yourself. So I'll just repeat it!

The Tigers don't "have to" win this game to win the World Series. Teams have lost the first two on the road and come back several times (1986 Mets were the last one).

But you never want to get into that situation. If the Tigers win tonight, I think we're headed for a six- or seven-game series.
