Oct. 28 -- Giants sweep Tigers in World Series
The San Francisco Giants may be under the radar, unappreciated and unexpected. But they're unassailable, the winner of two World Series titles in the last three years. Their sweep of the Detroit Tigers, completed Sunday night with a 4-3, 10-inning win, was simply historic. No National League team had swept a World Series since the 1990 Cincinnati Reds. No NL team had won twice in a three-year span since the Big Red Machine in 1975-76. Pablo Sandoval, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda, was benched for most of the 2010 Series and then went 8 for 16 this year, including a three-homer performance in Game 1, to win MVP honors.
