2012 World Series: San Francisco Giants sweep Detroit Tigers

Ezra Shaw

The San Francisco Giants won their second World Series in three years on Sunday.

The San Francisco Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers 4-3 in 10-innings in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series to win their second championship in three years.

The Giants ended the postseason with seven straight wins. They were down 2-0 to the Cincinnati Reds in the NLDS and 3-1 to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS but came back to win both series before completing the sweep of the Tigers at Comerica Park on Sunday.

Former Arizona Diamondbacks' starter Max Scherzer was credited with the loss in Game 4 after allowing three earned-runs, seven hits while striking out eight in 6.1 innings. Scherzer was 1-2 in the 2012 post-season for the Tigers.

Scherzer started 37 games for the Diamondbacks in 2008 and 2009 and had a 9-15 record with 240 strikeouts in 226.1 innings.

The Diamondbacks traded Scherzer to the Tigers in a three-team deal with the New York Yankees and received Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy in return.
