October 27, 2004 - The Boston Red Sox sweep the St. Louis Cardinals to win their first World Series in 86 years, breaking the infamous Curse of the Bambino.

Today’s Matchup:

Giants @ Tigers, 8:00 PM, ET:

Vogelsong (0-0, 0.00 ERA) v. Sanchez (0-0, 0.00 ERA)

Looking to commanding 3-0 series lead, the Giants give the ball to ace Ryan Vogelsong as he squares off against Anibal Sanchez and the reeling Tigers. After having nearly a week off before the World Series the Tigers looked very flat in San Francisco in totaling only three runs and 10 hits through two games. And it is not certainly not going to get any easier for this group against Vogelsong, who has been lights out this postseason and clinched the NLCS for his team. Simply put, Prince Fielder and Triple Crown-winner Miguel Cabrera need to step up and get this thing under control because the Giants are too mentally tough to just hand it to the Tigers.
