(Newser) – San Francisco moved to within one win of the championship by shutting down the Detroit Tigers once again tonight and taking a 3-0 lead in the World Series. The Giants won 2-0 for the second consecutive night, this time as the away team. Detroit just can't seem to get a clutch hit and has yet to even lead in the Series. San Francisco can clinch as early as tomorrow night. Bleacher Report has more on the game and the Series here.
