In a word, "no."

From Bruce Jenkins, writing in the San Francisco Chronicle:

Ben and Sam discuss the start of the offseason and what the Giants' second World Series win in three seasons says about GM Brian Sabean.

Episode 71: "The Giants Win the World Series/Assessing Brian Sabean"

For one night, the Giants' pitching wasn't dominant, but it didn't change a thing, and Detroit dropped its third in a row.

Have you ever had déjà, déjà, déjà, déjà vu? Because it sorta seems as if I've written this recap before. The Tigers’ latest 2-0 loss came against a new starter in a new setting, but the outcome was SSDD—same score, different day—for Detroit. The Tigers, who were shut out just two times during the regular season, have now been shut out two times in their past two games, becoming the first team to fail to score in consecutive World Series games since the 1966 Dodgers (and the first AL team to do it since the 1919 White Sox, who didn’t want to win).

The Giants try to clinch their second championship in three years, while the Tigers hope to live to play another day.

Before San Francisco’s 2-0 victory in Game Three, no team had logged back-to-back shutout victories in the World Series since the 1966 Orioles. The 2012 Tigers were held scoreless only twice during the regular season. So, naturally, the Giants blanked the Tigers in Games Two and Three to take a commanding, 3-0 lead in the Fall Classic. Can Detroit bounce back and avoid a sweep, or will the 2012 season end tonight, with San Francisco celebrating for the second time in three years? To answer those questions, here is a closer look at Game Four:

Down 2-0 but back at home, the Tigers need a win to avoid an elimination game.

The Giants held serve at AT&T Park, winning the first two games of the series by thrashing Justin Verlander behind Barry Zito in the opener and riding Madison Bumgarner in a duel with Doug Fister on Thursday night. Now, it’s up to the Tigers to take at least two of three in Detroit to send the series back to San Francisco. Step one is winning tonight’s Game Three, which may hinge on one offering by each starter that is crucial to his success.

Ben and Sam discuss all the notable events from World Series Game Two, including Madison Bumgarner's impressive outing, the line drive off of Doug Fister's head, and Jim Leyland's decision to play the infield back in the seventh, then assess the odds of a comeback by the Tigers.

Episode 70: "World Series Game Two/Protective Gear for Pitchers"

Madison Bumgarner reprises his memorable 2010 World Series start, killing Detroit softly to take a 2-0 series lead.

In Game One, we got a blowout, which is another way of saying we got one half of a pitcher’s duel. In Game Two, we got the whole duel. Both starters got through their first six innings unscathed. Both starters' lines showed fewer baserunners allowed than innings pitched. Both starters watched Andy Pettitte when they were younger and decided to steal that thing he does with his glove before each pitch.

A flashback to that first time Madison Bumgarner pitched well in the World Series.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

Madison Bumgarner's second World Series start was a success, but his first may have been even better. John Perrotto recounted Bumgarner's Game Four start in the 2010 World Series in the piece reprinted below, which was originally published as a "World Series Prospectus" column on November 1st, 2010.

We'll be chatting with you and each other from the first pitch to the last out of World Series Game One between the Giants and Tigers, starting at 8:00 PM ET tonight. Head back here then to follow along or participate while we watch to see whether Justin Verlander, who allowed an entire run in his last start, can possibly keep pace with NLCS stud Barry Zito.
