Road To The World Series 2010:
The San Francisco Giant beat the Texas Rangers in a tense Game 5 on Monday. They last crowned in 1954. After 56 Years the Giant win the World Series.
It was the pitching staff of Giants, led in Game 5 by two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum. Edgar Renteria was MVP of the series and hero of the night. He hit a two-out, three-run homer off Rangers ace Cliff Lee to break up a scoreless duel.
Club president Larry Baer said “We are waiting 56 years for this.”This is for everybody who has ever worn the Giants’ uniform.”, “for every fan who ever froze at Candlestick, for every person who ever voted for a new ballpark, for every person who listened to our games on the radio.”
Texas became the latest Series newcomer to make a quick exit. Houston in 2005 and Colorado in 2007 got swept in their first appearances, Tampa Bay in 2008 stuck around for just five games.
The Giants Manager declared in a press briefing, “The San Francisco Giants parade will start at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Montgomery and Washington streets and go southbound on Montgomery to Market Street and continue west on Market Street to Civic Center Plaza.”
