It's over.

The San Francisco Giants have beaten the Texas Rangers 3-1 in Game 5 of the World Series, taking the best-of-seven series 4-1.

Not many people predicted the Giants would win, and nobody would have predicted at the beginning of the year that they would be holding the World Series Trophy.

It is the first World Series Championship for the Giants since 1954, when the team was still in New York.

Edgar Renteria was named the MVP after delivering a three-run home run in the seventh inning, and Tim Lincecum was dominant once again in winning his second game of the Series, besting Cliff Lee of Texas in both of their head-to-head matchups.

Bruce Bochy proved that he knows how to handle a team that wasn't loaded with superstars.

An incredible and surprising run comes to and end.
