Fans have been rioting after major events for years, so it is no surprise that Giants fans took to the streets of San Francisco following their championship-clinching win in Game 4 of the World Series. After Marco Scutaro and Sergio Romo were done putting away the Tigers, Giants fans began celebrating in what has become an inalienable right to fans of championship teams. Bonfires, fireworks, broken windows, alcohol, brooms, flipped cars and burning buses were all part of the celebration that rivaled the 2010 celebrations. "We're going to help the partiers party," police Sgt. Tad Yamaguchi told the San Francisco Chronicle, citing the precautions taken based on events in 2010. "As long as they're lawful and having fun, we're all for it." Check out this video of the Giants fans celebrations.

HOW SWEEP IT IS
Marco Scutaro hit the game-winning single, while Sergio Romo closed out a sweep of the Detroit Tigers for San Francisco's second championship in three years.
The San Francisco Giants captured the 2012 World Series in a sweep against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night. Giants closer Sergio Romo recorded the final out of a 4-3 win over Detroit in 10 innings, by striking out Miguel Cabrera.
Marco Scutaro was a cast-off in Colorado.
With the Rockies out of playoff contention and Scutaro
sputtering, the team traded the 36-year-old infielder to the Giants at the
trade deadline in exchange for cash considerations and infielder Charlie
At the time, the transaction was another midseason
acquisition. Scutaro wasn't expected to make a groundbreaking impact...
Earlier in the regular season, I got a message from a pitcher asking about how his slider rate compared to that of a teammate. It seems they had something of a friendly wager. I checked and replied that, while his slider rate was high, and higher than his teammate’s, neither was close to the league lead. Way up top were guys like Luke Gregerson and Sergio Romo, who threw sliders...
With an 89 mph fastball, Sergio Romo unleashed the final
pitch of the 2012 World Series.
That fastball whizzed past Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera ––
likely the American League MVP –– and froze him for strike three. And just like
that, San Francisco dusted off Detroit to win its second championship in three
Unlike the 2010 title, the Giants cruised...
The San Francisco Giants captured their second World Series Championship in three years by sweeping the Detroit Tigers. After Sergio Romo recorded the final out for San Francisco, the party started in the streets of the city by the bay.

No one will ever confuse Sergio Romo for Mariano Rivera, but they have at least one thing in common. Each of the two closers mostly just feature one pitch: in Rivera's case the cut fastball and in Romo's it's the slider.
When Romo finally threw a 2-2 fastball right down the middle to Triple Crown-winner Miguel Cabrera for a called third strike, it was a microcosm for...

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist It ended exactly the way it should have, with the Triple Crown winner frozen at the plate.
Miguel Cabrera was so focused on a slider that his bat never moved as a fastball zoomed by for a called third strike. What made it even more fitting is that Sergio Romo, the guy who threw it, has been San Francisco's closer for all...
