Detroit’s son Eminem hung out with Tigers’ first baseman Prince Fielder before the start of Game 1, while The Newsroom star Jeff Daniels gave a detailed play-by-play throughout the night.
In the end, Pablo “The Panda” Sandoval and the Giants went home with an 8-3 win over the Tigers, with three homeruns courtesy of the 26-year-old third baseman.
