The temperature will be chillier and the Detroit Tigers are hoping home field will cool off the San Francisco Giants in the World Series soon.
After all, October sure has been warmer for San Francisco this fall.
With the Giants getting some friendly bounces and powerful pitching at spacious AT&T Park, the Tigers head back to Comerica Park down 2-0. Detroit's Anibal Sanchez starts opposite San Francisco's Ryan Vogelsong in Game 3 on Saturday night, with temperatures expected to be in the low 40s.
Whether those "baseball gods" some Giants joked about travel to the upper Midwest remains a mystery.
"Maybe they favor the home team," quipped Detroit slugger Delmon Young.
Teams that have won the first two games at home in the World Series are 29-7.
The AL champion Tigers were 50-31 at home during the regular season and only 38-43 on the road. In the postseason, they are 4-0 at home, winning twice against both the Oakland Athletics and New York Yankees.
"We're going try go out there more aggressive at home, trying to win the first one," Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera said. "If we win the first one I think it's going to be a different story."
The Giants, however, have traveled well in the playoffs.
After losing the first two at home in the NL division series, San Francisco won three straight to stun Cincinnati and become the first team in major league history to overcome an 0-2 deficit in a best-of-five series by winning the final three on the road. The Giants were 1-2 in St. Louis in the championship series, winning Games 6 and 7 at home.
"You can't count anybody out. Look at what we were able to do the last couple series," Giants closer Sergio Romo said. "You definitely can't count that team out. They were American League champions. They were picked to be here from the get-go for a reason. (But) we like our position and we like our chances and the way our team has fought."
