MLB – The San Fransisco Giants Are World Series Champions:
The San Francisco Giants have won their third World Series title in five years.
Michael Morse drove in two runs including a go-ahead RBI-single in the fourth inning as the Giants defeated the Kansas City Royals 3-2 in Game Seven at Kauffman Stadium.
San Francisco is the first road team to win a World Series Game Seven since the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates.
Jeremy Affeldt got the win.
Despite just two days of rest, Madison Bumgarner came on in relief and threw the final five scoreless innings to earn the save and MVP honors.
He went 2-and-0 while giving up just one run over 21 innings against the Royals.
Pablo Sandoval finished 3-for-3 with two runs scored for the Giants, who earned their eighth crown overall.
Sandoval set a Major League record with 26 postseason hits.
At 39, Tim Hudson became the oldest pitcher to start a Game Seven in the Series.
He yielded two runs in just an inning-and-two-thirds.
