Travel Day in Fall Classic


Detroit, MI - The World Series is all tied-up going into Game 3.

This, after Kenny Rogers continued his postseason dominance.

The 41-year-old southpaw pitched a two-hit gem over eight innings as the Tigers beat the Cardinals 3-to-1 last night. Rogers allowed an infield single to Scott Rolen in the first inning and an eighth-inning single to Yadier Molina. He struck out five. Rogers has not allowed a run in 23 innings in this postseason, a record for an American League pitcher.

Reliever Todd Jones gave up a run in the ninth before retiring Molina with the bases loaded to close out the four-hitter.

Craig Monroe homered in a two-run first inning for the Tigers for his fifth postseason homer. Sean Casey's line-drive single in the fifth drove in the third run off Jeff Weaver. He took the loss after allowing three runs on nine hits in five innings.

Today's a travel day. The scene moves to St. Louis for the next three games, starting with game three Tuesday night. Nate Robertson is scheduled to pitch for Detroit against Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter.
