Marco Scutaro delivered the big hit, a two-out RBI single in the 10th inning to drive in Ryan Theriot with the winning run in the Giants' 4-3 win over the Tigers. That was the Giants' sixth straight win in the postseason. Buster Posey added a two-run home run in the sixth.
But the Giants did it with pitching. Giants pitchers posted a 1.46 earned run average, the 12th-lowest ERA in World Series history.
After throwing back-to-back shutouts in Games 2 and 3, the Giants got another clutch pitching performance. Matt Cain held the Tigers to three runs over seven innings. Three relievers delivered three hitless innings of relief. The Tigers got only five hits -- none after the sixth inning.
Closer Sergio Romo closed out the victory by striking out the side in the ninth for his third series save. When he fanned Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera to end it, the Giants broke into a wild celebration at the center of the Comerica Park diamond.
Pablo Sandoval, who hit three home runs in Game 1, was named World Series MVP. Sandoval batted .500 for the series, and drove in four runs. Sandoval had 8 hits in 16 at-bats in the 108th Fall Classic.

Hungry TennCare eating more of state budget
May 24, 2013 16:56 GMT
JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- State Treasurer David Lillard says expanding health care costs could absorb funding the state used to spend on other needs.
The Jackson Sun (http://bit.ly/16eqTpT ) reported Lillard talked about the potential impact of the Affordable Care Act on Tennessee finances as he spoke to the West Tennessee Association of Health Underwriters on Thursday.
Lillard noted the state budget that goes into effect July 1 contains $391 million in new revenue and more than $300 million of that will be consumed by TennCare.
Lillard said support for higher education could further erode as a result. In 1990, state revenue funded more than half the cost of state universities. That percentage has already declined to about 38 percent and could be further reduced.
