In a surprising turn of events, the San Francisco Giants have shocked the world by winning this year’s World Series against the so-called “powerhouse,” Detroit Tigers. Not only did the Giants win, San Francisco ended the series in style by sweeping the Tigers in four games.

With this championship, the San Francisco Giants have notched their second pennant in three years (2010 and 2012). Overall, the Giants have won the most baseball games in history and collectively have a total of seven pennants since creation.

Giants’ skipper Bruce Bochy was in awe on how his team played against the Tigers and had some words for the media after winning the series.

“To be world champions and win two out of the last three years, it’s amazing,” Bochy said. “Believe me, I know how difficult it is to get here and I couldn’t be prouder of these group of guys, it’s amazing what they have accomplished.”

The San Francisco Giants, a team that posted a 94-68 record in the regular season (first in the NL West) faced elimination in both the Division series and the NLCS. The Giants were down 2-0 against the Cincinnati Reds and then down 3-1 against the St. Louis Cardinals. The magical Giants didn’t give up and won the next three games against the Cardinals to move on to the World Series.

There was no way that anyone could’ve told us that the Detroit Tigers, the team that dominated and swept the New York Yankees in the ALCS were going to get swept themselves in the World Series. Yet, it happened and once again, the baseball gods have reminded us that anything is possible when it comes down to winning. All it takes is a little magic and momentum and before you know it, miracles happen.

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants!

  1. There was no backbone in this Tigers’ team and it made this World Series utterly boring from a spectator standpoint. All the same, kudos to the Giants on their triumph!

      After beating the Yankees 4-0, you would’ve thought the Tigers were going to make it a competitive series even after being down 2-0 to the Giants. It just never came and it went downhill from there. If you’re the Tigers, it was the saddest way to end the season.

  2. I didn’t watch much of the series but will admit to being as surprised as most by the way it turned out.

      What a World Series huh? It received one of the worst TV ratings in history compared to other World Series championships… Before you knew it, it was already over.
