The Giants capped a 4-0 sweep of the Tigers with a thrilling, extra-inning 4-3 win in Game 4 at a rain-dappled Comerica Park in Detroit. As he has been doing all postseason, Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro came up with the key hit, singling home Ryan Theriot with the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th inning.
Sergio Romo then closed out the series-clinching win, locking up the Giants’ second title in three seasons (2010) and the seventh in their 129-year franchise history.
