*(Via Newsy) – It’s safe to say a baseball dynasty has formed in the Bay Area! The San Francisco Giants defeated the Kansas City Royals 3-2 in game 7 to capture the team’s third championship in the past five years — a feat only five other teams have achieved in MLB history.
Despite an early exit from Giants’ starter Tim Hudson in the 2nd inning after giving up two runs, San Francisco’s bullpen — or should we say, pitcher Madison Bumgarner — pulled through in the clutch and didn’t allow another run for the rest of the game.
To no surprise Bumgarner also walked away with the Most Valuable Player award. The towering lefty was virtually unhittable in the series and now holds the World Series record for lowest ERA in history among pitchers who’ve thrown more than 30 innings. The Giants won all three games Bumgarner took the mound.
