Major League Baseball Preview

By Jim McCoy Mon 15th October SportsMajor League Baseballplayoff preview
The San Francisco Giants have to figure out a way to win on their own field if they want to play in the World Series. The NL West champions dropped a 6-4 decision to the St. Louis Cardinals in last night's NLCS opener and are now 0-3 at home this postseason. The Giants also have to find a way to cool off Carlos Beltran, who belted his third home run of the playoffs in Game 1. Ryan Vogelsong gets the opportunity to do that tonight in Game 2 of the best-of-seven get together. The Redbirds counter with Chris Carpenter. The setting for the American League Championship Series is shifting from New York to Detroit. The Tigers will bring a 2-0 advantage over the Yankees into Game 3 of the best-of-seven pennant showdown on Tuesday following last night's 3-0 shutout of the Bombers in the Bronx. Neither team has a scheduled workout today. Yanks manager Joe Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman were in Illinois for the funeral of Girardi's father. Jerry Girardi died Oct. 6 at the age of 81 after a long struggle with Alzheimer's.
