In 2012 the Giants finished the regular season in first place (94-68) bringing home the National League West pennant to advance to the Postseason. Facing elimination against the Cincinnati Reds (3-2) in the NL Division Series, they advanced to the NL Championship Series where they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals (4-3). In the World Series they swept the Detroit Tigers (4-0) to claim their second World Series title in three years. The streak of six straight elimination games won tied a Major League record.
Manager Bruce Bochy said of his 2012 World Championship Team, “I think you have to look at the resilience of the 2012 team, the never-say-die group that had their backs against the wall. Six different times they faced elimination in the playoffs to win those games to keep going. That would be the overarching theme of the 2012 club: heart, determination and the resilience that team had to play with.”
