The Giants are your 2012 World Series champions.

The Giants topped the Tigers 4-3 in 10 innings tonight at Comerica Park in Detroit to finish off a four-game World Series sweep. This is the Giants’ second World Series title in the past three seasons and the seventh in franchise history.

Game 4 was a back-and-forth affair, including go-ahead two-run homers from Buster Posey and Miguel Cabrera and a game-tying solo blast from Delmon Young. The Giants ultimately took the lead in the top of the 10th inning after Marco Scutaro punched a two-out single in front of Austin Jackson in center field to score Ryan Theriot. Sergio Romo struck out the side in the bottom of the 10th to finish off the victory, freezing Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera for the final out.

The Giants are the first team to sweep the World Series since the Red Sox finished off the Rockies in four games in 2007. They are the first National League team to sweep the World Series since the Reds defeated the Athletics in 1990.

    I can’t wait till the offseason predictions are made for division winners and the dodgers are favored over the giants even though they are defending champs. Enjoy it now giants it will be the last for the rest of the decade

      I believe the Dodgers were favored this year as well.

      You have no sense of irony and therefore are hypocritical thinking the Dodgers are a clean organization. Remember Manny Ramirez…the difference is that the Dodgers welcomed him back with open arms after his suspension to be successful in the playoffs…The Giants kicked Melky to the curb. That is one huge difference between our organizations. The Giants have moved on from the PED era.

      But let’s discuss what Eric Gagne had to say about his time with the Dodgers:

      “Gagne first admitted publicly to using HGH in 2010.”
      In his book, Gagne does not the name players he says used PEDs.
      “I was intimately aware of the clubhouse in which I lived. I would say that 80 percent of the Dodgers players were consuming them,” Gagne says in the book.”

      Glass house…shattered.

    tell Brian Wilson that his beard isn’t funny anymore

    We will see about the garbage overpaid Dodgers. Kinda funny, Matt Kemp even caught giants fever this postseason. It would be like Jeter openly rooting for the Red Sox in a World Series. But, hey, we will accept the support. San Francisco is building something special with the g-men and the 49ers. Title town 2012 baby!

    Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants!
    Great job on keeping that trophy in the National League where it belongs.
    A very deserving World Series Champion!

    The guy I’m most happy for is the fan that got beat up, he has to be feeling pretty good right now
