12 Best Photos from the 2012 World Series

The San Francisco Giants just put another season in the books.

With their four-game World Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers, the Giants completed one of the most improbable backwards runs in recent history.

After being down 0-2 against the Cincinnati Reds, they managed to come back for a three-game streak to win their way to the National League Championship Series.

The Giants then had to face a team that had seen its own October magic already, the St. Louis Cardinals. After being down 3-1 in the series, the Giants again won three straight to take the series and advance to their second World Series in three years.

From baseballs hit three times to Barry Zito flashing back to the early 1990s, everything the Giants did worked.

The improbable NLCS hero Marco Scutaro carried them there, and the pitching—both starting and relief—carried them to yet another World Series title.
