After surviving multiple elimination games on their way through the post-season, the San Francisco Giants completed their 4-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers tonight to become  the winners of the 2012 World Series and Major League Baseball’s champions.

The Tiger did their very best to hold off the inevitable on their home turf of Comerica Park, pushing the Giants to extra innings. But San Francisco’s Marco Scutero would hit a go-ahead single to allow Ryan Theriot to score at the top of the 10th inning, and then the Giants’ defense – finishing with a strikeout from pitcher Sergio Romo – sealed the deal. Pablo Sandoval, who tallied 3 home runs and 4 RBIs while maintaining a .500 batting average throughout the World Series, was named the Series MVP.

The win is a sweet one for the Giants given that this is their second MLB championship in three years (the Giants previously won the World Series in 2010). The Day & A Dream Team especially sends its congratulations to San Francisco right fielder and former Houston Astro Hunter Pence, who played a huge part in the Giants’ postseason run and tonight acquired the first championship ring of his career.
