The Giants and Tigers have been major league franchises for well over a century. They will square off in the World Series for the first time, beginning Wednesday in San Francisco.
The Giants are the National League Champions following a 9-0 rout of the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 7 of the NLCS in San Francisco. It's the 20th pennant for the Giants, who earned it by becoming only the seventh team to win a league championship after trailing three games to one.
Former Colorado Rockie Marco Scutaro was named Series MVP. He hit .500 in the NLCS and had at least two hits in six of seven games.
