The Giants broke a 10th-inning tie Sunday night and won the World Series when Marco Scutaro singled home Ryan Theriot to give the Giants a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers in Game 4 of the Fall Classic.
Once Marco Scutaro punched a single off Phil Coke to drive in Ryan Theriot with two outs in the 10th inning on Sunday night, the Giants had what they needed to send the Tigers to a 4-3 loss in Game 4 to complete a World Series sweep.
For Giants manager Bruce Bochy, this World Series win is certainly one to savor. It's San Francisco's second championship in the past three years and puts Bochy among the pantheon of the modern managerial baseball gods.
From their historic resurgence against the Reds in the National League Division Series to their refusal to wilt against the Cardinals a round later, the Giants seemed destined to capture the World Series title. The Tigers took a bit of solace knowing they collided head-on with a steamrolling locomotive.
