DETROIT -- Giants first baseman Brandon Belt entered Game 4 having gone 0-for-10 with six strikeouts in the 2012 World Series. His team was thriving with him forming a huge void in the six-hole of the San Francisco batting order.
Belt was the first player in World Series history to go 0-for-10 or worse while his team took a 3-0 lead, according to Elias Sports Bureau (via Jayson Stark).
And yet, Belt has come through with the big blow early in Game 4. After a Hunter Pence double with one out in the top of the second, Belt ripped a Max Scherzer pitch into the right-field corner and came all the way around to third base.
So, once again, the Giants have an early lead. This time, it came courtesy of a Brandon Belt triple.
It's worth reiterating that the Giants have not trailed once since losing Game 4 of the NLCS to the Cardinals, which obviously means the Tigers haven't had a lead all World Series.
