And it’s over! Â The final night of the World Series ended tonight in Detroit, with a 4-3 victory, making the San Francisco Giants World Series Champions! Â Fans everywhere will be celebrating around the city, eager to purchase their new San Francisco Giants World Series Champions gear.
Everyone over on the East Coast is interested in the weather, meanwhile the city of Detroit is facing a disaster of their own: Â a World Series sweep given down by the SF Giants.Â The Tigers were facing a tall order tonight. No team since the beginning of the World Series has ever come back 3-0 games to win. To be blunt, no team trailing three games to zero has even forced a sixth game. It was basically a question of when, not if.
Previous to tonights game, the Tigers, optimistically, said that they could have changed history; that theyâ€™ve won four games in a row before, and that they can do it again. Delmon Young took a more realistic approach to the situation: â€śIâ€™m either going back to San Francisco to play game six, or Iâ€™m going back to Beverly Hills,” he said. “Iâ€™d like to go back to San Francisco, but the odds are against us right now, and weâ€™ve got to make the best of it.”
Unfortunately, he was right, and the odds were against him and his team. Â Looks like he’ll be on his way home, while the winners throw on their San Francisco Giants Champions Apparel.
The heroes for the SF Giants withÂ their victory over the Tigers in the World Series had to be the pitchers; Â Ryan Vogelsong, Tim Lincecum, and Barry Zito. All were nothing short of amazing, and they together provided the first back-to-back shutouts in a World Series since the Orioles and the Dodgers three straight times â€“ back in 1966.
The San Francisco pitching rotation, because of Vogelsong, Madison BumgarnerÂ and Barry ZitoÂ have totaled to allow only one run in 17Â 2Â /Â 3Â innings vs the Tigers during the first three games of the series. Theyâ€™re the main reasons the Giants lead the series three games to none. Â The Giantsâ€™ starting pitchers has taken on Detroitâ€™s entire lineup.Â Over the first three games of this series, the Tigers have 13 hits off Zito, Bumgarner and Vogelsong. Since Game five of the NLCS, the Giant’s starters are 6-0 with a 0.47 ERA. Â That is something pretty special. Â Without the skill and power of the pitchers, there is no doubt the Giants wouldn’t have swept.
Rejoice Giants fans! Â For the second time in three years your team has be entitled champions of the baseball world. Â Time to don your rightful Giants World Series Champions jerseys and Giants World Series shirtsÂ and Â hold your head high, because through the ups and downs of the season, you’ve earned this one too!
