Four games up, and four games down. After the drubbing the Detroit Tigers took in the first game of the World Series, they never managed to get into the game despite their best effort. Sure, Detroit got close by pushing the fourth game of the World Series into an extra inning, but ultimately it wasn’t enough. The San Francisco Giants are the 2012 World Series Champions, sweeping the Tigers 4 games to none. Last night at Comerica Park, the Giants beat the Tigers 4-3 to claim the world series.
“When pitching is your strength, you want a good defense,” said Giants manager Bruce Bochy. “That shows up every day. … Hitting sometimes, it comes and goes. But as long as you can stay in more games, the better chance you have of winning them, and that’s how we play.”
Pablo Sandoval, for his efforts in the field and on the plate, was named the World Series MVP. I guess starting the series off with three home runs is a good way to get in the good graces of the voters; for the series, Sandoval hit .500 by going 8-16 at the plate. He also made a key defensive play this game.
