Of course, the hero for the San Francisco Giants was bound to be Marco Scutaro.
He didn’t have a great World Series, but if it wasn’t for Scutaro, the Giants wouldn’t have been there. Scutaro batted .500 against the St. Louis Cardinals to enable the Giants to win the National League Championship Series.
In the top of the 10th, Scutaro’s single drove in Ryan Theriot with the tie-breaking run. Scutaro’s game-winner came two days before his 37th birthday.
Scutaro has played 11 years in the majors and before this season, he played for just one postseason team, the 2006 Oakland Athletics.
Now, he’s a member of the World Series champs.
The Giants held off the Detroit Tigers for a 4-3 win, and win the World Series in four straight.
It was the Tigers’ best game of the Series, but before Sunday night, they did nothing.
Miguel Cabrera and Delmon Young had home runs for Detroit, but had little help. Cabrera was called out on strikes as the Giants began to celebrate.
