Giant's Win World Series
The San Francisco Giants win another World Series title. This is the Giants 6th title, to go with their 1905, 1921, 1922, 1954 and 2010 titles. There has been one other National League team to have a sweep a team in the World Series, the 1990 Cincinnati Reds. The San Francisco Giants won two games straight at home, 8 to 3 and 2 to 0. The Giants went to Detroit won game three 2 to 0. The San Francisco Giants won the series in the fourth game with a sweep of Detroit in the 10th inning 4 to 3. This was a team effort. San Francisco took an early lead. Pence hit a one-hop drive over the center-field fence for a double and Brandon Belt tripled on the next pitch for a 1 to 0 lead in the second inning. The third inning, Cabrera gave the Tigers a reason to think this might be their night. He hit a two run home run giving the Detroit the lead 2 to1. The Giants put a dent in Detroit's confidence. Giants Scutaro led off the sixth with a single and then Posey sent a shot that sailed just inside the left-field foul pole for two more runs giving the Giants 3 to 2 lead. Then Cabrera turned around and hit a home run tying the game 3-3. The game continued all the way to the bottom of the 9th with the score still tied. In the 10th inning Marco Scutaro delivered one more key hit with a go-ahead single with two outs in the 10th inning giving the Giants the lead 4-3. In the bottom of the 10th Sergio Romo got Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera looking with his third strike for the final out.
The manager Bruce Bochy had the foresight to put this team together and it paid off big time. The pitching was the most amazing thing I have ever seen in a World Series game. The hitting of the San Francisco Giants was also spectacular! The way Giants MVP of the series Pablo Sandoval put on a hitting clinic in game one was incredible. I was so excited that the Giants won the World Series again. I think that 2 championships in less than 3 years are pretty amazing. This shows how great the San Francisco Giants are. San Francisco Giants fans supported their team no matter what. The Giant fans in Northern California are gearing up for a parade on October 31, 2012. All you will be seeing is a sea of orange and black. It is time for celebration for the City of San Francisco and the Bay Area. Congratulations San Francisco Giants!
