Live from San Francisco, it's World Series Game 1



It's a picturesque day by the bay here in San Francisco, with the teams prepping for tonight's opener.

Ace Justin Verlander will start for the Tigers tonight; renaissance man Barry Zito for the Giants.

Both the Tigers and Giants kept their rosters the same from the last round.

The Tigers lineup, as expected, includes Delmon Young in leftfield, since there is no DH for the games here. Of some surprise, rookie Avisail Garcia, who began the season with Class A Lakeland, is in the lineup in right, giving the Tigers an extra righthanded bat vs. Zito.

Detroit lineup:

Jackson cf
Infante 1b
Cabrera 3b
Fielder 1b
Young lf
Peralta ss
Garcia rf
Avila c
Verlander p

San Francisco lineup:
Pagan cf
Scutaro 2b
Sandoval 3b
Posey C
Pence rf
Belt 1b
Blanco lf
Crawford ss
Zito p
