Detroit Tigers Swept, San Fransisco Giants World Champions

World Series - San Francisco Giants v Detroit Tigers - Game 4

The Detroit Tigers finally saw some life from their offense.  Miguel Cabrera gave Detroit their first lead of the 2012 World Series with a two-run opposite field homer in the 3rd. 

Delmon Young hit a solo shot to tie the game at 3 after the Giants took a 3-2 lead on a Buster Posey homer. 

The game went into extra innings and the Tiger bats went cold.  Tiger-killer Marco Scutaro hit an RBI single in the 10th inning off Phil Coke to score Ryan Theriot with the lead run.

Giants closer Sergio Romo made sure that the World Series would end tonight as he struck out Austin Jackson, Don Kelly and Miguel Cabrera to earn the save in a 4-3 victory and nail down the Giants second World Championship in the last 3 seasons. 

The Tigers didn’t hit in this World Series.  They were shut out two times in the 162-game regualar season.  They were shut out twice in this World Series. 

Scrappy teams like the Giants and the Cardinals seem to do well in postseason play against power-laden American league teams that seem to lack power in the games that count the most.

The Tigers will return most of their key players next year and should welcome switch-hitting Victor Martinez back to the lineup.  They really need to add some role players that can help with defense and do things to manufacture runs in tight ballgames.

Hats off to the  San Francisco Giants, the 2012 World Champions of baseball.  They played the best when the games counted the most.  That’s what good teams do.  That’s what champions do.
