The Giants try to go up three games to none. The Tigers try to stop them.
So I wrote this article for Baseball Nation earlier today in which I tell you all about the multiple teams that have gone down two games to none and still won the World Series.
Go ahead. Read it. If you think this World Series is over, it's not. (Though the Tigers really have to win tonight, because no team has ever won a World Series after being down three games to none.)
It's going to be cold in Detroit tonight, but that's not unusual for a late-October World Series. Temperatures will be in the 40s. That's tolerable.
Here's an interesting World Series fact:
Tonight will be 31st #WorldSeries game played in Detroit, 6th among all cities (NYC-191, STL-59, CHI-42, BOS & Philly-40).— MLB Public Relations (@MLB_PR) October 27, 2012
42 World Series games have been played in Chicago... but just five of those have been since the Cubs were last in the Series in 1945, all on the South Side. Time to change that, soon.

This will be the only thread for today's games; if it gets too slow, post another one in the fanshot area. Discuss amongst yourselves.
