The San Francisco Giants have won baseball's World Series for the second time in the past three seasons.

The Giants swept the Detroit Tigers with a 4-3 victory in 10 innings in game four of the best-of-seven series.

The Giants beat Texas in the 2010 World Series and this World Series crown is the club's seventh all-time title. The first five came before the team moved from New York to San Francisco in 1958.
