San Francisco Giants sweep Detroit Tigers in 2012 World Series

DETROIT – The Giants played a key role in securing home-field advantage for the National League in this year’s All-Star Game. As it turned out, they didn’t need it. San Francisco wrapped up a four-game sweep of Detroit on Sunday, clinching the Giants’ second World Series title in three years with a 4-3, 10-inning win over the Tigers at Comerica Park. The clincher was more dramatic than any of the first three games, as the Tigers actually held a lead, then tied the game in the sixth as the game eventually went to extra innings. But NLCS MVP Marco Scutaro singled in the go-ahead run against Phil Coke in the 10th inning, scoring Ryan Theriot from second base to give the Giants a one-run lead. Sergio Romo closed it out against the top of Detroit’s lineup, retiring Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera for the final out to set off a Giant celebration on the Tigers’ turf.
