The San Francisco Giants are up 2-0 in the World Series.
On Saturday, starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner pitched seven shutout innings as the Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers 2-0.
The Giants however received a bizarre hit that led to the game winning run. With the Giants having runners on first and second with nobody out in the seventh inning, Gregor Blanco delivered a bunt down the third base line that was barely fair. Then with the bases loaded, Brandon Crawford hit into a double play, but scored the run.
One of the strangest rules in baseball is this. Had Crawford been safe at first and hit into a fielder’s choice, he gets a run batted in, but because he hit into a double play, he does not.
