The Giants Were too Much for the Tigers to Handle


I've written a lot about the San Francisco Giants lately. It's been the same old, same old. Dominant pitching and enough offense have defined this team. Actually, besides games 2 and 3, the Giants had been scoring quite a few runs. In games 2 and 3, they were limited to only 2 runs in each game but that was enough to win those games against the Detroit Tigers. Tonight the Giants scored 4 runs. Was that enough?

Buster Posey San Francisco Giants 8x10 Photograph 2010 World Series Game 4I started writing this article during the middle of the 6th inning, the most exciting stretch of the game from a scoring perspective. In the top of the 6th, Buster Posey hit a 2 run home run to give the Giants a 3-2 lead. Then Delmon Young hit a solo home run to tie the ball game in the bottom of the inning. This was the most exciting game of the series. Detroit actually found a way to score some runs.

After trading of runs, things tapered off. The game went into an extra inning. Theriot led of the top of the 10th for the Giants with a single. Crawford laid down a sacrifice bunt to get Theriot to 2nd base and in scoring position. With 2 outs, Scutaro singled to score Theriot.

That took us to the bottom of the 10th with Sergio Romo coming in as the closer for the Giants. The Tigers needed their bats to come alive one more time in this game just to send the series to a 5th game and avoid the sweep. That didn't happen.

Romo was on fire. He was unhittable. The first 2 batters went down swinging and the third one 3rd one went down looking as the GIANTS won the WORLD SERIES. The Sweep was final. The sweep happened. The Tigers didn't win a game.

The question I have to ask is, where did Price Fielder go this World Series? With his failed at bat in the bottom of the 8th inning he was 1 for 13 in the series. That's awful and unacceptable for the power hitter. Fielder along with his fellow batters were a huge disappointment in this World Series. They couldn't produce adequate offense and there's very few pitching staffs in the history of the game that could have won with that lack of production.

I'm giving all the credit to the Giants. They outplayed the Tigers in every element of the game. In the end, the Giants were too strong a team for the Tigers. The Tigers were no match for the Giants. Tigers fans need to come to the realization that their team was greatly outplayed by a much better team. The Tigers were massacred in this series.

Sweeping the Tigers should prove to the baseball world that the Giants were the best team in the playoffs and the team that deserved to win the World Series. The Giants win the World Series. The Giants win the Word Series 4 games to 0. The Sweep baby. The Sweep. The Giants won game 4 by the score of 4-3.

The Giants were too much for the hapless Tigers. The Tigers had no answers to the mighty Giants. The Giants looked like Giants and the Tigers looked like kittens. The Giants win the World Series. The Giants win the World Series.
