  • Statcast: Perez's scoop and throw too fast for Blanco
    Trailing Game 3 of the World Series by one run in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Giants desperately needed a baserunner.

  • Hudson's World Series debut doesn't lack intensity

  • Herrera's first MLB at-bat comes in World Series
    Kelvin Herrera was 16 years old the last time he stepped into a batter's box in a competitive baseball game. And yet, there he was on Friday night, called upon to bat in a one-run game in the World Series. He promptly struck out on three pitches, but not before fouling off a Sergio Romo fastball.
