SWEEP! SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS CROWNED 2012 WORLD SERIES CHAMPION!

Written by 

A devastatingly cold night in Detroit, Michigan couldn't cool off the San Francisco Giants in game 4 of the World Series. This 2012 edition would win their second title in three years at the hands of the Detroit Tigers in a 4 game sweep. It would take 10 innings but the comeback kids dipped deep into their bag of tricks and pulled out a World Series Championship. Game 4 gave baseball fans a great back-and-forth battle, ultimately seeing the Giants pull it out on a Marco Scutaro blooped single which scored Ryan Theriot from second base in the top of the tenth. The always classy Sergio Romo shut the door on the Tigers in the bottom of the inning which included a strikeout of Miguel Cabrera to end the game and send Detroit packing for the offseason.

In San Francisco over 10,000 diehard fans celebrated at the downtown Civic Center while millions of other Giants faithful would celebrate around the world.

The Giants finished the 2012 postseason with seven straight victories and combined timely hitting, stellar defense, and dominating pitching to get the job done.

As Giants players rushed the field after the third called strike to Cabrera, the happiness and joy overwhelmed the team and coaching staff as many of the players cried tears of joy. In the locker room champagne overflowed as Team President Larry Baer, General Manager Brian Sabean, and Skipper Bruce Bochy accepted the World Series Trophy from Commissioner Bud Selig. The Kung Fu Panda Pablo Sandoval would proudly accept the World Series MVP trophy due in large part to his amazing Game 1 performance in which he hit 3 home runs. In the 4 game series Sandoval went 8-16 with 3 home runs and 4 RBI's. "It's just an incredible moment you're never going to forget," he said.

If i was asked to use one word to describe this Giants team and their unforgettable postseason run, I would say "DETERMINATION". This team just would not quit, nor would they ever let themselves believe they would not win it all. It may sound cliche to call these guys a "Team of Destiny" but they are truly that and then some. I am so proud to be a Giants fan, a baseball fan, and a Bay Area native tonight. This team deserves this Championship and Bay Area and Central Valley fans deserve this team.
