Giants are World Champs, Sweep Tigers out of World Series
The Giants are the Champions of Baseball for the second time in the past three years. San Francisco completed the four game sweep of the Detroit Tigers with a 4-3 win in ten innings in Game 4 on Sunday night in Detroit, Michigan.
Marco Scutaro’s single scored former Cardinal Ryan Theriot with the go ahead run in the 10th. Giants closer Sergio Romo then retired the Tigers 1-2-3 in the bottom of the inning to seal the Championship win.
Buster Posey hit a two run home run in the 6th inning of Tigers pitcher and St. Louis native Max Scherzer to give the Giants a 3-2 lead. Scherzer pitched well for Detroit in the game, throwing into the 7th inning, allowing three runs, while striking out eight. The Tigers tied the game in the bottom of the 5th on Delmon Young’s solo home run. San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval was named the MVP of the World Series, thanks to his three home run performance in Game 1 of the series.
For the Giants, it’s their seventh consecutive post season win. They won the final three games against the Cardinals in the NLCS before this four game sweep of the Tigers in the World Series. The Giants won the 2010 World Series over the Texas Rangers. This is the 10th overall championship for the Giants franchise.
