The scrappy San Francisco Giants swept the heavily favored Detroit Tigers in four games to win the World Series, topping the Tigers 4-3 in the deciding Game 4 on Sunday night in Detroit. Giants closer Sergio Romo sealed the deal by striking out Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera in the 10th inning, as Cabrera "was so focused on a slider that his bat never moved as a fastball zoomed by for a called third strike." The Giants also took the World Series title in 2010. Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval, pictured, was named MVP of this Series. He hit .500 with three home runs, a double and four RBIs in 16 at-bats.
