October 28, 1989 - The Oakland Athletics sweep the San Francisco Giants in the 1989 World Series, known as the Earthquake/BART Series. The “BART” refers to the Bay Area Rapid Transit system as both teams reside in the San Francisco area. The “Earthquake” refers to the Loma Prieta earthquake that occurred during the Series just 11 days earlier.
Giants @ Tigers, 8:00 PM, ET:
Cain (0-0, 0.00 ERA) v. Scherzer (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
After taking a commanding 3-0 series lead, the Giants send Matt Cain to the mound to clinch the World Series against Max Scherzer and the Tigers in Detroit. If Cain’s previous performance in a closeout game is any indication of what we will see today, then the Giants should be hoisting their second World Series banner in three seasons. Cain was dominant against the Cardinals in Game 7 of the NLCS and his teammates have been playing championship baseball since the first pitch of the series. For the Tigers to even have a chance of making this series competitive, the bats need to really need to wake up. The Tigers have only 15 hits and four runs through the first three games of the series, with Triple Crown-winner Miguel Cabrera tallying only two of those hits. Let’s see if they wake up tonight.
