SAN FRANCISCO (Bleacher Report) — Finally, we’ve reached the pinnacle of the MLB season—the 2012 World Series—between the American League Champion Detroit Tigers and the National League Champion San Francisco Giants.
Justin Verlander, widely regarded as the best pitcher in baseball, will be on the mound pitching at AT&T Park for just the second time in his career. Opposing Verlander will be Barry Zito, who will be taking on the Tigers for the 17th time in his career.
Verlander has been absolutely dominant throughout the postseason while Zito was masterful in his last start in the National League Championship Series.
