San Francisco sweep Detroit to win World Series
Giants-Tigers: San Francisco sweep Detroit to win the 2012 World Series. San Francisco defeated Detroit, 4-3, in 10 innings on Sunday night to win their second World Series title in three years. The Giants have won seven championships overall. San Francisco beat the Texas Rangers in five games in 2010.
The Giants relied on strong pitching to knock down opponents in their path to a World Series victory. Ryan Vogelsong was arguably the strongest pitcher for the Giants in the postseason.
The Tigers never led until Game 4, when Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera provided a glimmer of hope with a two-run drive. But in the end, Cabrera stared down a fastball straight down the middle from relief pitcher Sergio Romo. The strikeout ended Detroit’s hopes.
The Giants have now won two championships in three years. Has a new era of San Francisco dominance begun?
