What an amazing game yesterday! The San Francisco Giants, especially their left-hand Madison Bumgarner were in perfect shape against the Kansas City Royals and won their third World Series title in five years.
The star of the show was Bumgarner who played the part of a reliever and managed to throw five shutout innings, which earned the save in a 3-2 win. With this new title the San Francisco Giants won their eight World Series title and their third one in five seasons. Their last victories were in 2010 and 2012.
Bumgarner was named “the Most Valuable Player of the World Series” and he very much deserved this title after last night’s game. Bumgarner was dazzling against the Royals, although he just returned on the field after a two-day rest after the game with them on Sunday, when Bumgarner managed to throw a 111-pitch shutout.
The 25-year-old Giants star said about the game on Wednesday:
“I was just thinking about getting outs until I couldn’t get them anymore. Fortunately I was able to get some quick innings and I was able to stay in there.”
The starting pitcher of the San Francisco Giants, Tim Hudson said that they wouldn’t have left Bumgarner leave the team without winning this World Series Title. Hudson praised Bumgarner’s performance saying that: “You couldn’t have pried the ball out of his hands.”
The game between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals was played on the Kauffman Stadium, home of the Royals. The Royals have won the last nine titles of the World Series, so many were expecting for a new victory from their side. The San Francisco Giants amazed everyone by winning the game last night and being the first road team since the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates to win the World Series Game Seven title.
After the Giants’ victory last night, the streets of San Francisco exploded into violent and raucous behavior and the police had to intervene and arrest some the excited fans. People were injured by gunfire and police officers got hurt by the ones who were throwing rocks and bottles at them.
