Game. Set. Match.

As we noted in an earlier post, no team has ever returned from a 0-3 hole in a World Series. We believe that one day, it will happen.

But not this year.

San Francisco Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers, 4-3 to win the 2012 World Series, 4 games to zero. The Tigers were actually leading in this game but couldn’t hold it. The game went into extra innings. In the 10th inning, the Giants scored the tie breaker. Marco Scutaro drove in Ryan Theriot with the series-winning run with a single off Phil Coke. In the bottom of the 10th, Sergio Romo struck out the side, including freezing Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera on a called third strike to end the series.

Now the Giants have won two of the last three World Series, and as I’ve told one of my former colleagues, they are a big deal. The Giants are no longer in the group of teams that seemingly get nervous and squeeze the sawdust out of their bats when they get in tough situations. The Giants are now expected to win.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
