For the first time this postseason, the San Francisco Giants found themselves in position to eliminate their opponent rather than playing with their backs against the wall.
With the 3-0 series lead and needing to win just once in the next four games, the Giants sent Matt Cain (16-5, 2.79 ERA in regular season) to the mound to oppose the Detroit Tigers' Max Scherzer (16-7, 3.74 ERA in regular season) Sunday evening.
Neither pitcher disappointed and were able to turn the pitching duel over to their bullpens with the score tied at 3-3.
With the game in extra innings, it was San Francisco that was able to come through on a leadoff single by Ryan Theriot, a sacrifice bunt by Brandon Crawford and a clutch RBI single by Marco Scutaro to give the Giants a 4-3 lead.
Then enter Sergio Romio.
The Giants closer would strike out Miguel Cabrera for the final out, giving the Giants their second World Series Championship in the past three years.
Enough stalling, here are the grades for Game 4 of the World Series.
