Event Information:

The World Series was the 108th edition of Major League Baseball's championship series. The best-of-seven playoff was played between the National League champion San Francisco Giants, and the American League champion Detroit Tigers, with the Giants defeating the Tigers in four games to win their seventh World Series title. The Tigers became only the third team to be swept in the World Series after sweeping the League Championship Series, following the 1990 Oakland Athletics and the 2007 Colorado Rockies. The Giants' Pablo Sandoval, who in Game 1 tied a record for hitting three home runs in a World Series game, was named World Series MVP.

After 3 games, the Giants took a commanding 3-0 lead, and look strong odds-on to complete the victory. In Game 1, The Giants jumped to a 6–0 lead in the fifth inning en route to a 8–3 victory in Game 1. San Francisco's Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs, joining Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols as the only players to hit three home runs in one World Series game. Sandoval also went 4-for-4, and recorded four RBIs. Detroit ace Justin Verlander lasted only four innings, giving up five San Francisco runs, including two of Sandoval's homers. Conversely, Giants starting pitcher Barry Zito worked 5 2⁄3 innings, allowing only one run. The Giants scored their final two runs in the seventh inning off demoted Tigers closer José Valverde, who hadn't pitched since Game 1 of the ALCS and who has now surrendered nine earned runs in 3 1⁄3 postseason innings. Jhonny Peralta hit the Tigers' only home run in the ninth.

After Zito allowed a run and three hits in the sixth inning, he was relieved by Tim Lincecum, who pitched 2 1⁄3 perfect innings with five strikeouts. It was only the second World Series game in which three Cy Young Award winners (Lincecum, Verlander, and Zito) pitched; the first time it happened was Game 3 of the 1983 World Series, when Steve Carlton started for the Philadelphia Phillies while Mike Flanagan started for the Baltimore Orioles and was relieved by Jim Palmer.

Game 2, the Giants went ahead 2–0 in the series after winning Game 2. The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the seventh inning when, with the bases loaded, Brandon Crawford grounded into a double play that allowed Hunter Pence to score. Pence's sacrifice fly in the eighth inning with the bases loaded then allowed Ángel Pagán to score San Francisco's second run. The Tigers' best chance to score occurred in the second inning: With Prince Fielder on first base, Delmon Young hit a double on a ground ball to left field. Fielder attempted to go all the way to home but was tagged out at the plate by Buster Posey. Madison Bumgarner pitched 7 shutout innings, yielding only two hits with 8 strikeouts, for the win.

With their 2–0 victory in Game 3, the Giants became the first team in a World Series to record back-to-back shutouts since the Baltimore Orioles did it against the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1966. San Francisco starter Ryan Vogelsong pitched 5 2⁄3 shutout innings. Detroit had the based loaded with one out in the 5th inning, but Vogelsong got Quintin Berry to strike out swinging, and got Miguel Cabrera to pop out to end the Tigers' scoring threat. The Giants' only runs were scored in the 2nd inning; A triple by Gregor Blanco allowed Hunter Pence to score, then Brandon Crawford's single allowed Blanco to score.
