Baseball’s Best: San Francisco Giants

Giants Sweep Tigers in WS

The San Francisco Giants have won the 2012 World Series. In game 4, the Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers 4-3 in 10 innings. This victory completed a four-game sweep. The Tigers erased a 1-0 deficit with a two-run dinger by 3B Miguel Cabera of Detroit to make the score, 2-1 Detroit. Giants C Buster Posey responded with another two-run blast that gave SF the lead 3-2. This marks the first time in which both batting champs homered in the same World Series, let alone in the same game. Tigers DH Delmon Young tied the game with a solo home run. At 3-3, the game went into extra innings. In the top of the 10th inning, Giants 2B Marco Scutaro knocked in the winning run with a base-hit. The Tigers failed to score against Giants P Sergio Romo in the bottom-half of the 10th and San Francisco claimed their seventh all-time crown.
