DETROIT — Funny, this stuff never seems to get old.

Celebrating in hostile territory, hoisting trophies and dousing one another in champagne, the Giants could get used to winning the World Series.

Giants Fans Celebrate World Series Win


Riding some impressive relief work by Jeremy Affeldt, Santiago Casilla and Sergio Romo, the Giants battled to a 4-3 victory Sunday night in 10 hard-fought innings for a four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers.

San Francisco scored the winning run in the top of the 10th when surprise designated hitter Ryan Theriot scored on a single by, of course, Marco Scutaro.

"It means everything," said center fielder Angel Pagan, who won his first World Series ring. "They're my teammates, my brothers, my family. That's why I was so emotional on the field. We deserve this. We went through a lot of ups and downs, a lot of bumps in the road."
