Giants top Tigers 4-3 to sweep World Series
The San Francisco Giants are the champions of baseball after defeating the Detroit Tigers 4-3 Sunday night in Detroit to sweep the World Series 4 games to none. It took 10 innings for the Giants to get last night’s win, as Marco Scutaro hit a go-ahead single with two outs in the 10th to get the winning run, and Sergio Romo struck out the side in the bottom of the 10th to clinch the championship, with the final out being Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera. The Giants, who also won the World Series two years ago in 2010, became the first National League team since the Cincinnati Reds in the mid-1970s to win two titles in a three-year span. The Giants’ Pablo Sandoval, nicknamed “Kung Fu Panda,” was named the World Series MVP. Sandoval hit .500 in 16 Series at-bats, getting three home runs — all of them in the first game, to become only the fourth player to ever hit three homers in one World Series game — as well as a double and a total of four RBIs.
