San Francisco Giants win the 2010 World Series.
Monday night, the Texas Rangers were defeated 3-1 in Game 5 of the World Series at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.
Game 5 started out like we expected, a pitchers dual between Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum. Lee was perfect with 6 strikeouts, but then up to bat was Edgar Renteria. Top of the 7th, Renteria bombed a two-run shot to left field giving the Giants a 3-0 lead.
But the Rangers kept fighting. Nelson Cruz answered with a solo shot in the bottom of the 7th, putting Texas behind two runs, but it just wasn't enough to make a comeback.
Giants closer Brian Wilson closed out the Major League Baseball season striking out Nelson Cruz for the Game 5 win and the World Series Championship. The Giants first title since 1954.
Despite the loss, the Texas Rangers still had a season to remember; one of their bests ever. On their road to baseball's biggest stage, they accomplished a lot in just one year.
