Can Giants Get 3rd Straight Shutout?

DETROIT, Mich. (CBS Sports) — It’s not weird anymore.

It’s not weird, and it’s not lucky. The San Francisco Giants aren’t a game away from winning their second World Series in three years because of any higher powers, unless those higher powers are named Zito, Bumgarner, Vogelsong and Cain — with a little assistance from a guy named Lincecum.

Seriously, are these guys ever going to give up a run?

Game 3 Saturday night ended up as a 2-0 Giants win, which should sound familiar because Game 2 on Thursday also ended up as a 2-0 Giants win. And if this is all starting to look a bit familiar, it should, because the Giants also shut out the Texas Rangers twice on their way to winning the 2010 World Series.

You know how many teams in the last 46 years have thrown two shutouts in a single World Series? Two. The 2010 Giants, and now the 2012 Giants.
