DETROIT -- The San Francisco Giants made it a clean sweep. Second baseman Marco Scutaro hit the game-winning single with two outs in the top of the 10th inning to score Ryan Theriot, and the Giants completed a four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers with a 4-3 victory Sunday night to win the World Series. Giants closer Sergio Romo struck out the side in the bottom of the 10th inning, fanning Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera looking for the final out. Romo, known for his dominant slider against right-handed hitters, threw his only fastball to Cabrera to end it. "Tonight was a fitting way for us to end it," Giants catcher Buster Posey said. "Those guys played hard, they didn't stop. It's an unbelievable feeling." Theriot started the winning rally with a single off losing pitcher Phil Coke and was bunted to second by Brandon Crawford. Coke struck out Angel Pagan, but Scutaro followed by dropping a single into right-center field to score Theriot. ...

Marco Scutaro got to avoid the colossal mess that was the 2012 Red Sox and ended up winning a World Series title on the west coast. In my Bob Lobel voice, "How come we can't get guys like that?" Congrats to the the Giants on their sweep. The Giants join the Red Sox, Cardinals, and Yankees as teams that have won titles since 2000. This was supposed to be our millenium!
Timothy Burke, the video and screen-grab genius over at Deadspin, somehow caught this gem of a screenshot. The image features CSN Bay Area interviewing Matt Cain following the San Francisco Giants World Series sweep, while Ryan Theriot is in the background using the urinal to relieve himself. Not much else needs to be said here.

Say what you will about the merits of Ryan Theriot, but one thing’s indisputable: the guy sure knows how to slide across home plate with a championship on the line.
Theriot scored the World Series-winning run in the top of the 10th inning Sunday night on a Marco Scutaro single, but it’s not exactly the first time he’s won a championship with his ass sliding across home plate...

Obviously there is not much to say about this photo, since its pretty self-explanatory and hilarious. It’s not often that you see someone relieving themselves in the background of a professional interview.H/T: Cosby Sweaters

Awesome. But not amazing.
This team did crazy things. It won tough game after tough game, and then they cruised. And then, one last tough game.
But it was not amazing. Not to the Giants fans who followed this team this year.
The team was built for productivity, not glamour. Nearly every single one of Brian Sabean’s moves paid off in one way or another, from Scutaro to...
