The San Francisco Giants capped off an amazing playoff run with a sweep of the Detroit Tigers last night to win their second World Series in three years.
The Giants were down 2-0 to the Reds in the first round before rattling off three straight victories in Cincinnati. The Giants were on the brink of elimination in the National League Championship Series (NLCS) against the Cardinals but won three games in a row to make it to the World Series
Two Venezuelans carried the Giants this postseason. Marco Scutaro drove in the game winning single in the 10th inning last night. Scutaro also won the NLCS MVP.
The World Series MVP was Pablo Sandoval, who turned in one of the most memorable performances in World Series history in Game 1. Sandoval hit three home runs that game, including two homers against Detroit ace pitcher Justin Verlander.
Sandoval led the postseason with six home runs and 13 RBIs. In the World Series he was 8-for-16 in the four wins.
