Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The San Francisco Giants needed 10 innings and another clutch hit from Marco Scutaro to capture their second World Series title in three years with a 4-3 Game 4 victory over the Detroit Tigers.

Scutaro, the NLCS MVP, hit a two-out humpback liner off Phil Coke in the 10th that bounced in front of center fielder Austin Jackson and knocked in Ryan Theriot from second to break the 3-3 deadlock.

Sergio Romo retired the top of Detroit's lineup in succession to finish off the sudden sweep of the American League champs and give the franchise its seventh World Series championship.
