Yes, game time on FOX at 8:00, but, coverage begins at 7:30 pm They'll be showing the highlights of the last 2 weeks for both teams and will introduce you (those not having watched any of the NLCS) to the Giants players. Get used to the names Panda and Buster. Go Tiger's.

Mark - thanks for the info. I added that to the schedule. Let's hope we hear the names Panda and Buster in the same sense we heard A-Rod's name last series.

Tonight’s game has two great pitchers going at it with the always-dominant Verlander, and a resurgent Barry Zito. I can’t wait for tonight’s game and I’ve already set a reminder for it through my Hopper’s GameFinder app. A coworker at DISH told me about this feature, and it’s helped me keep up with when baseball playoff games have been on TV. The series is going to come down to quality pitching, and both teams are well-stocked in that department!
