Pitching, pitching and more pitching. That was the secret to the Giants' first World Series championship since moving to San Francisco in 1958. The Rangers were supposed to have the edge on offense, but after Game 1 -- an 11-7 loss -- the Texas bats never got going. Only four teams scored more runs than the Rangers during the season, but the Giants shut them out twice, then clinched the Series when Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson combined on a three-hit, 3-1 victory in Game 5. Edgar Renteria was named the Series MVP after hitting .412 (7 for 17) with six RBIs, including a game-winning three-run homer in the finale.
