Your browser does not support iframes.The San Francisco Giants look like a team destined to win the World Series. They are getting all the right bounces right now and this was further evidenced by a double hit by Angel Pagan during Game One Wednesday night.With two outs and nobody on in the bottom of the third, Pagan smacks what appears to be a routine chopper down the third-base line. As fate would have it, the baseball takes a fortuitous bounce off the bag and rolls into left field which allows Pagan to stroll into second base with a stand-up double.The reaction by Detroit Tigers third basemen Miguel Cabrera at the end of the video clip is priceless.San Francisco went on to win the game easily, 8-3, to take a 1-0 lead in the series.However, they were nearly eliminated in the NLDS after getting down 0-2 to the Cincinnati Reds. They would win three straight games on the road to pull off an improbable comeback and advance to the NLCS where they met the St. Louis Cardinals.They also flirted dangerously with elimination in that series after falling behind 1-3. That's when they roared back to win three in a row (again) to punch their ticket to the World Series.Yes, the Giants look like a team of destiny.
