San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 in ten innings in game four of the World Series, and became the champions of baseball with a 4-0 series sweep.
For the Giants, it's their second title in three years after not having one since moving from New York to San Francisco after the 1957 season. For the Tigers, it's another soul-crushing championship series loss after falling in five games to the Cardinals in 2006. Detroit hasn't won a World Series since 1984.
As for Sunday's game, it was more of the same. Matt Cain had a solid start for the Giants, allowing three runs on five hits over seven innings while walking two and striking out five over the course of the game. Not to be outdone, Max Scherzer allowed three runs on seven hits in 6 1/3 frames, walking one and striking out eight over the course of the game.
But the Tigers offense showed up tonight more than they had all series. Detroit took a 2-1 lead in the third inning after a two-run ho...

What a night! The timing of RSVLTS.com’s trip to San Francisco couldn’t have been any better. First off, we left NYC only hours before Hurricane Sandy hit and we also arrived the night the Giants beat Tigers to win their second World Series in three years. Lucky for us our hotel was about half a block from the impromptu fan riot at the intersection of 3rd Street and Market Street...
Detroit second baseman Omar Infante broke his left hand when he was hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the World Series.
Infante went down to the ground immediately after a pitch by San Francisco reliever Santiago Casilla came inside and the Detroit hitter was unable to avoid the ball. Infante got up relatively quickly, took off his batting glove and walked toward the...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
When Marco Scutaro came up to bat with the game tied, two outs and a runner on second base in the 10th inning last night, anyone who pays a lick of attention to all things Red Sox [team stats] understood completely...
On the deciding play of the 2012 World Series, the 5-foot-10 current second baseman scored the 5-foot-11 former second baseman with a flare that dropped into center field with an artist's precision. The scrawny, 5-foot-10 closer recorded the final out, using an 89 mph fastball to freeze the opposition's towering Triple Crown winner, one night after the spindly, long-haired...

Well, here we are. We’re on the verge.
We’re on the verge of something incredible—something inconceivable and crazy and something that I thought I might never see in my lifetime.
We’re on the verge of a second World Series victory in three years.
It’s completely surreal. Just unbelievable.
I still can’t fathom what’s going on and how this all happened, but it’s happening...
