  • Game 4 World Series

    7.5
    10 years from now when we look back on this series, we'll be talking about two players: Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder, who may be finishing up Hall of Fame careers. I doubt we'll remember the team that won, and the heroes from that winning team like Marco Scutaro, Pablo Sandoval and Ryan Theriot.



    This was a blue collar San Francisco team that fed off Bruce Bochy's relaxed managerial style. Detroit really rallied in the final weeks of the season around Jim Leyland, but perhaps we saw that his borderline grumpy demeanor could not stop a team of destiny.



    This was a good game, highlighted by how amazing it is that last year the Giants couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, and this year, 1-8 can drive in the game-winning run at any moment.moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (on his closer Sergio Romo strike out of Miguel Cabrera to end the game)
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: Sergio, he's a guy you want out there, because he commands the ball so well he's not afraid. He knew Cabrera was looking for the slider, and he also knows he manages his fastball so well and knows he can locate it.
      .
      San Francisco Manager Bruce Bochy: Pitching and defense is how we win games. (Angel) Pagan, (Gregor) Blanco and (Hunter) Pence cover so much ground in the outfield, and that's what you need when pitching's your strength. The longer you stay in games, the better your chance of winning. That's just how we play

    • Detroit Manager Jim Leyland: Obviously, there was no doubt about it. They swept us. So there was certainly no bad breaks, no fluke. Simple, they did better than we did. It was freaky. I would have never guessed we would have swept the Yankees and I would have never guessed the Giants would have swept us.

    • San Francisco Right Fielder Hunter Pence: ... we didn't allow doubt to ever creep in. You know, the thing that made this team so special is just playing as a team, caring for each other. We had our backs against the wall and we knew it wasn't going to be easy. It's not supposed to be.

    • San Francisco Catcher Buster Posey: Tonight was a battle, and I think tonight was a fitting way for us to end it because those guys played hard. They didn't stop, and it's an unbelievable feeling.

    • Detroit Third Baseman Miguel Cabrera: I think we never found our confidence at home plate. It was not the same game we played. We could not find our game in the World Series.
