The San Francisco Giants will make their 21st World Series appearance. The Giants have won the World Series six times -- the most recent was in 2010 over the Texas Rangers.


The Detroit Tigers will face the San Francisco Giants in the 2012 World Series after the Giants defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 9-0 Monday night in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series.

The Giants are returning to the World Series just two years since winning it in 2010.

San Francisco will have home-field advantage because the National League won the All-Star game. Game 1 is 8 p.m. Wednesday in San Francisco.

The Giants' regular season record was 94-68. Detroit's was 88-74.

The franchises have never met in the World Series. The Tigers have four titles -- most recent in 1984 -- to the Giants' six.

However, the Giants have won just a single World Series since moving to San Francisco in 1958. The other five were earned when they were known as the New York Giants.
