DETROIT (1660 THE FAN) - It was a nail-biter. After tying the game 3-3 midway through the 6th, the Giants recovered to beat the Tigers 4-3, sweeping them and winning the World Series in four games. The series was all but over as San Francisco took an early 1-0 lead, but a 2-run homer by Miguel Cabrera brought Detroit ahead and gave hope that this game wouldn’t be a repeat of the last three, or at least the last two. Add to this the fact that, of 23 teams to previously take a 3-0 lead, 20 of them swept the opposing teams, and game four becomes the ultimate edge-of-the-seater.
After the Tigers struck out in the bottom of inning 9, the two teams went into an extra inning, but Detroit blew their last chance and San Francisco got a final run in (courtesy of Marco Scutaro) to win the game.
This is the second time in the last three years that the Giants have won the World Series title and their first sweep of the post-season. At this point, all that can be said is 'better luck next year,' as the Tigers played about as hard as they could, and were down to the wire on this final game.
