|Tigers Hope Bats Warm Up in World Series Chill
|DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers are hoping a change in scenery and the chance to face a right-handed pitcher will help them charge back into the World Series against the San Francisco Giants.
Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera, slugger Prince Fielder and the rest of the Tigers managed a total of only 10 hits and three runs in losing the first two games at San Francisco.
Game 3 is Saturday night in Detroit. Anibal Sanchez will start for the Tigers.
Shut down by left-handers Barry Zito and Madison Bumgarner, the Tigers will try to end their slump when they take on right-hander Ryan Vogelsong.
The Tigers hit more than 20 points higher against righties than lefties this season.
