The San Francisco Giants won the World Series tonight with a nail-biting 3-2 Game 7 victory over the Kansas City Royals.
Madison Bumgarner threw five shutout innings in tonight’s winner-takes-all game in Kansas City after two stellar starts earlier in the World Series.
Both teams scored twice in the second inning and Michael Morse hit a broken-bat RBI single in the fourth to score Pablo Sandoval with what proved to be the winning run. Sandoval reached base all four times in the game.
The title is the Giants’ third in five years. The team’s World Series-clinching wins in 2010 and 2012 also came on the road.
