The San Francisco Giants became the new MLB Champions! The Giants swept the Detroit Tigers in the 2012 MLB World Series with a Game 4 victory last night! Giants’ Marco Scuataro hit the clutch game-winning RBI single in the top of the 10th inning to knock in Ryan Theriot, and give the Giants the 4-3 edge! Thousands crowded around to celebrate the Giants second Title in three years!
“I saw it and that was awesome. He may have hit two of the three against the best pitcher in baseball,’’ Reggie Jackson told The Post before the Giants’ grabbed a 2-0 World Series lead with a 2-0 victory over the Tigers Thursday night. “I haven’t seen Clayton Kershaw, the lefty from the Dodgers and the knuckleballer from the Mets [R.A. Dickey], but this guy [Verlander] is the most dominant in the game. You hit two homers off him in a World Series game you are doing something. The first one was a 95-mph out of the strike zone. You have to tip your cap to that.’’ – nypost
