Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The San Francisco Giants needed 10 innings and
another clutch hit from Marco Scutaro to capture their second World Series
title in three years with a 4-3 Game 4 victory over the Detroit Tigers.
Scutaro, the NLCS MVP, hit a two-out humpback liner off Phil Coke in the 10th
that bounced in front of center fielder Austin Jackson and knocked in Ryan
Theriot from second to break the 3-3 deadlock. Sergio Romo fanned the top of
Detroit's lineup in succession to finish off the sudden sweep of the American
League champs and give the franchise its seventh World Series crown. The
Giants ended a 56-year World Series drought by winning it all in 2010, and
completed this year's run by staving off six elimination games and winning
their final seven contests. Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the third
inning to give Detroit its first lead of the series, but Romo froze the
Triple Crown winner on a 2-2 fastball with two outs in the ninth to close
out another dominating pitching performance.
