The San Francisco Giants win the World Series, their second in the last three years

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Matt Cain had one thought as he watched Marco Scutaro dig in for the at-bat of his life.

"I was just hoping he hadn't burned up all of his big hits through the year already," Cain said. "He's had so many. I was hoping he had another one in there for us."

The little Giant, the one they call "Blockbuster," did indeed. With two outs in the 10th inning, Scutaro floated a single to short center field. Austin Jackson charged hard but finally had to concede he would lose the battle with gravity.

Read it all.

It was great to watch our boys get it done, though I have to admit it did feel a little anticlimactic.

Incredible team effort. Win six straight elimination games and then sweep the favored Tigers. I remember when they moved in ‘58, and I had to change my loyalty from the (now LA) Dodgers to the Giants. Amazing team - apparently no egos.
