young, home run to right. his second hit of the game. his third home run of this postseason. he will face affeldt. one on, two out. ball 1 low. unless young goes deep, the outfield, as deep as it is, the game could still be tied no matter what with a left-handed hitting dirks on deck. two out in the inning. the 1-0. fouled away. a ball and a strike. >> tim: that's why you play that no-doubles defense. you play deeper than you normally would, keeping everything in front of you and making that runner at first base, or making the tigers get two hits to beat you or to go ahead of you. >> joe: pence, belt and blanco for san francisco will be the hitters. here's the 1-1. that missed.
ball 1. one on, two out. 2-1 pitch. that's foul and young broke his bat. so the count is 2-2. right off the end of it. >> tim: more firewood. >> joe: fire sounds good as the temperature has really dropped here in the last two innings. if you are just joining us, it is 11:00 in the east. miguel cabrera with a two-run shot. his first extra-base hit. his only extra-base hit in this world series and it put the tigers up by one. posey returned the favor with a two-run shots to
put the giants up by one in the sixth, and delmon young, the man at the plate, tied it in the bottom of that sixth inning. 3-3 game with the giants leading three games to nothing and a check on garcia. 2-2 pitch. struck him out! what a job by jeremy affeldt! he gets around a leadoff walk and then walks right through the heart of the order. strikes out cabrera. strikes out fielder. gets delmon young. 3-3 into the ninth inning of game four. ♪ ♪

a 3-3 game top of the ninth. the rain has almost stopped entirely. game four of the 2012 world series. pence, strike 1. hunter has had better swings over the first ten games of this postseason he hit just .154. he doubled and scored his first time up tonight. started tonight hitting over .300 over his last five games. rally caps are on. the 0-1 pitch. strike 2. >> tim: if pence can get on for the giants, it would go a long way toward helping the giants score in this inning with two left-handers coming up. but as it was important for jeremy affeldt to get miguel cabrera out, the left-hander to the right-hander, the same for coke against pence. >> joe: here comes an
0-2. phil coke was part of the yankees when they won it all in '09. in that december he was mart of that big trade and he found himself a tiger. >> tim: that's what he is, too. this guy is a tiger. >> joe: here's his 1-2 pitch to pence. on the inside corner, one away! >> tim: hunter pence had no chance on this pitch. inside corner. affeldt striking out three after the walk to garcia and now the first batter that coke faces, he strikes out. >> joe: here's brandon belt. this postseason phil coke now has gone nine innings, has not allowed
a run. he's gone 2 for 2 in save chances and opponents are hitting right around .130 against him. >> tim: wow. >> joe: as you said, left-handed batters, this is the specialty of coke. he got a strikeout of hunter pence, and you can see laird trying to calm phil down a little bit after that high fastball missed. he may be overthrowing a bit. 2-0. right-handers now just two out of 15 against coke this postseason after hitting just under .400 against him during the regular season. here's the 2-0. belt fouls it back and he had a good swing. brandon with an rbi triple in the second. his only hit of this world series. may have chased ball 3.
>> joe: no doubt he held up. full count with blanco on deck. two out! our nikon replay. jeremy affeldt in the bottom of the eighth went right through the heart of the order for the tigers. after a leadoff walk he got cabrera, fielder and young. now phil coke is trying to match him. he struck out all six batters he's faced in this world series. here's blanco.
strike 1. coke throwing hard, 95. gregor blanco is 1 for 3 tonight. one home run this postseason. five during the regular season. the tigers will have dirks, peralta and infante. in the bottom of the ninth inning. here comes the 0-1. one ball, one strike. >> tim: when you throw as hard as phil coke does against a left-handed batter, they become more low-ball
hitters. blanco can pull the low pitch, not the high one. >> joe: the 1-1. strike 2. now coke can strike out the side, send his team flying off the field into the bottom of this ninth inning, trying to avoid a sweep. >> tim: if you are wondering how many home runs blanco has hit against left-handed pitching, three this year. >> joe: struck out the side! [cheers and applause] it takes a run to force game five. dirks, peralta and infante coming up bottom of the ninth, tied 3-3.
>> joe: what's it going to be in the bottom of the ninth inning? a live shot of san francisco civic center where 10,000 people who love their giants are watching, wondering if they will be celebrating in the bay area a second championship since the team moved out west in '58. they won it in 2010. they lead three games to nothing as we play in the bottom of the ninth
inning. tie game. andy dirks first up against affeldt. strike 1. he ties up dirks. >> tim: this is why jim leyland loves dirks hitting against left-handed pitching because he's short to the ball. he often hits the ball to left field against left-handers. hit .274 against them in the regular season. >> joe: casilla still up in the bullpen. two strikes with peralta, the right-handed hitter, on deck. so a battle of the bullpens. that's what we have gotten to here in game four. avila struck out the side in the eighth. phil coke struck out the side in the ninth. the 0-2. breaking ball stays up. ball 1.
dirks now in battle mode with two strikes. we've seen affeldt talk to himself a lot while he's out there pitching. >> tim: a lot of hitters do that too when he's pitching. this guy is tough on left-handers. fastball in tight, sweeping breaking ball away. >> joe: the 1-2. scooped up by posey. 2-2. bochy and righetti have a decision to make after dirks, once he ends the night. he hit eight home runs during the regular season. and he strikes out. that is four straight for affeldt!
can't do it any better than jeremy affeldt. one out hire in the ninth. >> tim: after the walk to garcia, four straight strikeouts. that's that sweeping breaking ball we were talking about. tough on left-handers. watch dirks. >> joe: top home run hitter in this lineup. tied with delmon young this postseason. the guy at the plate is jhonny peralta. two in the alcs, and he went deep in game one. here's the 1-0. outside. 2-0. >> tim: only one hit for peralta in this world series. he's 1 for 14. that was that home run that joe was talking about. >> joe: he hit that off kontos, the
right-hander. 2-0. high fly ball into left center. back is pagan, still going, and he makes the catch for out number 2! >> tim: that's why you play a no-double defense. you play the outfielders deeper than they would normally play. normally pagan would be trying to guard against the single. here he's guarding against an extra-base hit, and it takes him to the middle of the track to haul it in. >> joe: that ball was pounded, maybe that's why bruce bochy is out there right now. he's seen enough. >> joe: with infante coming up, that's going to be it for affeldt. he did a great job. went an inning and two-thirds, struck out four, leaves with the bases empty. but on this cold night with the wind blowing out to right, that ball died on the track. casilla coming in. two out. bottom of the ninth, tie game.

>> joe: affeldt used all of his body language on this shot to deep center by peralta. if the wind helped those two shots out to right, you see the wind and the effect of it with the debris in the dugout swirling on that pitch. the crowd got a rise. the wind may have helped knock that ball down. it was pounded by peralta. casilla, strike 1. here's another good piece of the giants' bullpen, santiago casilla. third pitcher of the night. releaves affeldt and has the bases empty. two out. >> tim: the giants
bullpen can left-right you much better than the detroit bullpen. once coke is out of the game, no more left-handers down there. >> joe: that's outside. a ball and a str and. >> joe: right now they have porcello, valverde, al alburquerque and joaquin benoit. looks like coke would go back out for the tenth if we go there. infante stays outside. 2-1. so often it's an unlikely source that comes up with a big swing or a big play in a game like this. infante one out of three tonight. here's the 2-1. oh, and that got him on the hand or wrist.
>> tim: santiago casilla throws a very heavy ball, and it looked like it hit infante on the left hand. this fastball riding up-and-in. oh, boy. oh, man. we've heard of that hammock bone so many times. >> joe: let's listen. that's going to take infante right out of the game. >> tim: what it does is press that is left hand right against the wood. no place to go. that could be a big blow for the tigers. boy, oh, man. jo so the tigers are going to need to find somebody to run. they have ramone
santiago. danny worth is down there, and it will be worth. >> tim: santiago is not a fast runner. jim leyland has said that if santiago could run he would be a regular second baseman. he's that good. >> joe: defensively it will likely be santiago. but out of the game is infante, and that didn't look good. >> tim: jim leyland is hoping he doesn't have to worry about defense in the top of the tenth. >> joe: laird will be the hitter. he's 0 for 3 and 1 out of 19 this postseason. >> tim: pablo sandoval is still on the line at third base to protect against the extra-base hit. >> joe: left side and right to sandoval who gets the out at second, and we go to extra innings in game four.

this postseason. we talked about the eight total second basemen the tigers used during the regular season. that position settle the down when the trade was made for infante in july. worth played second base 31 times. but the last time he played second base was august 5th. made one error during the regular season so we will keep an eye on that. phil coke takes over with theriot, and then joaquin arias in the on-deck circle for crawford. then angel pagan, the switch hitter. 3-3, tenth inning. giants trying to end it tonight. theriot trying to get it started. ball 1. phil coke struck out the side in the ninth. c
