Giants vs. Tigers final score: Detroit falls 4-3 in Game 4, loses World Series

Ezra Shaw

The Giants are the 2012 World Series champions.

An RBI single by Marco Scutaro in the top of the 10th inning propelled the San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series on Sunday night. With the win, San Francisco completed a four-game sweep and won the Major League Baseball crown.

The Giants scored the first run of the game, which came on a Brandon Belt triple in the second inning, but the Tigers would not be shut out for the third straight game. Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run home run in the third inning to give his team a 2-1 lead, which the Tigers held until Buster Posey's two-run home run put the Giants back in front in the sixth inning.

That lead didn't last long, as Delmon Young evened things up at three with a solo homer in the bottom half of the sixth. The teams were held scoreless until Scutaro's breakthrough hit in the 10th.
