The 2012 World Series was the 108th edition of Major League Baseball's championship series. The best-of-seven playoff was played between the National League champion San Francisco Giants, and the American League champion Detroit Tigers, with the Giants defeating the Tigers in four games to win their seventh World Series title. The Tigers became only the third team to be swept in the World Series after sweeping
the League Championship Series, following the 1990 Oakland Athletics and the 2007 Colorado Rockies. The Giants' Pablo Sandoval, who in Game 1 tied a record for hitting three home runs in a World Series game, was named World Series MVP.
After 3 games, the Giants took a commanding 3-0 lead, and look strong odds-on to complete the victory. In Game 1, The Giants jumped to a 6–0 lead in the fifth inning en route to a 8–3 victory in Game 1. San Francisco's Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs, joining Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols as the only players to hit three home runs in one World Series game. Sandoval also went 4-for-4, and recorded four RBIs. Detroit ace Justin Verlander lasted only four innings, giving up five San Francisco runs, including two of Sandoval's homers. Conversely, Giants starting pitcher Barry Zito worked 5 2⁄3 innings, allowing only one run. The Giants scored their final two runs in the seventh inning off demoted Tigers closer José Valverde, who hadn't pitched since Game 1 of the ALCS and who has now surrendered nine earned runs in 3 1⁄3 postseason innings. Jhonny Peralta hit the Tigers' only home run in the ninth.
After Zito allowed a run and three hits in the sixth inning, he was relieved by Tim Lincecum, who pitched 2 1⁄3 perfect innings with five strikeouts. It was only the second World Series game in which three Cy Young Award winners (Lincecum, Verlander, and Zito) pitched; the first time it happened was Game 3 of the 1983 World Series, when Steve Carlton started for the Philadelphia Phillies while Mike Flanagan started for the Baltimore Orioles and was relieved by Jim Palmer.
