DETROIT -- In the bottom of the third inning of Game 4 of the World Series, Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run home run. Aside from being significant on its own, due to being a World Series home run, there were two things particularly special about this homer.
1. The home run gave the Tigers their first runs since the 9th inning of Game 1, ending a streak of 20 consecutive scoreless innings.
2. The Tigers had not led in the World Series up to that point. On top of that, the Tigers never trailed in the ALCS. And the Giants hadn't trailed since losing Game 4 of the NLCS.
And for the first time all series, there's actually some drama.
At the end of three innings, the Tigers lead, 2-1.
