The San Francisco Giants Led by Madison Bumgarner Win a Third World Series in 5 Seasons

October 30, 2014

The San Francisco Giants won the 2014 World Series crown winning the decisive seventh game at Kansas City vs the Royals by a (3-2) score.

It is the Giants’ third World Series title in 5 seasons. They came in the last three “even years” (2010, 2012 and 2014.)

World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner, who already had notched two series wins with dominant starts, hurled five scoreless innings to preserve the Giants’ eighth title. It’s their third in “SF,” the others were as the “New York” Giants.

The big defensive play was turned in by Giants’ rookie second baseman Joe Panik, who started a great double play in the bottom of the third inning. By all accounts, (especially the one from dental hygienist Lia, the mother of Joe’s friend Carl) Panik is a good guy and he certainly has worked hard in achieving his goals. The play in game 7 was vital and a strong case can be made for the fact it saved the game.

Other Giants’ heroes included Michael Morse, who had 2 RBIs in game 7 and Pablo Sandoval, in perhaps his last game as a Giant–winking into the Fox camera and reaching base to start both Giants’ scoring innings (2nd and 4th).

The Giants are the first team to win game 7 of the World Series on the road since the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1979. Meanwhile the Royals fell just short in a bid for their first World Series title in 29 years.
