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.
