Giants Win Second World Series in 3 Seasons

By  | 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Giants fans are gathering in downtown San Francisco to celebrate their team's World Series championship.

Some 2,000 fans assembled to watch the game on a Jumbroton a park across from City Hall, but the crowd grew in numbers and volume throughout the night.

The crowd exploded in a roar with the final out as the Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers, sweeping the series.

10-year-old Anthony Yos and his 15-year-old brother Luciano danced in an embrace with their parents.

Someone in the crowd launched fireworks a few minutes after the game and the park was awash with revelers, strangers hugging strangers and wine bottles and marijuana cigarettes being freely passed through the crowd despite a heavy police presence.
