The San Francisco Giants have won the World Series of baseball, beating the Texas Rangers 4-1 overall by winning game five 3-1.
The Giants haven’t won a World Series since moving from New York to San Francisco in 1954. Their 2010 victory won’t be remembered as one of the best, but that surely won’t matter for a team that has waited so long.
Columbian Edgar Renteria clinched the series with a three-run homer and was later named the Most Valuable Player of the series.
The Giants fans were so pleased with the win that they decided to riot, rather bizarrely. What should have been a night of celebration ended up being a night of shame for a city that is usually peaceful.
