San Francisco Giants
DETROIT (AP) -- Marco Scutaro singled home the tiebreaking run in the 10th inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 on Sunday night to complete a four-game sweep and win their second World Series title in three years.
Ryan Theriot, who went hitless for St. Louis in Game 7 of last year's Series, singled softly into right field off Phil Coke opening the 10th.
Brandon Crawford sacrificed, nearly bunting the ball past Coke. Angel Pagan struck out and Scutaro singled into short center field as Theriot slid home ahead of Austin Jackson's throw.
Pablo Sandoval, who hit three homers in Game 1, was selected Series MVP. He was 1 for 5 in Game 4, dropping his Series average to .500 (8 for 16).
Santiago Casilla got the final out of the ninth for the win, and Sergio Romo struck out the side in the 10th for his third save, freezing Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera with a called third strike to end it. The Giants ran out of the dugout and bullpen to celebrate ...

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!
