Rowdy Fans Celebrate Giants’ World Series Sweep

SAN FRANCISCO (October 29, 2012)--San Francisco was cleaning up Monday after revelers celebrating the Giants World Series victory turned rowdy.

A public transit bus was set on fire, a vehicle was flipped over, and the windows of several businesses and vehicles were broken as fans took to the streets after the Giants win Sunday night.

Fans also lit bonfires, fueling them with couches, signs and newspaper racks.

Riot police escorted firefighters to some of the fires.

Police made arrests, although the exact number was unknown.

Marco Scutaro singled home the tiebreaking run in the 10th inning, as San Francisco beat the Tigers 4-3 Sunday night to complete a four-game sweep and win their second World Series title in three years.

Ryan Theriot, who went hitless for St. Louis in Game 7 of last year's Series, singled softly into right field off Phil Coke opening the 10th.

Brandon Crawford sacrificed, nearly bunting the ball past Coke. Angel Pagan struck out and Scutaro singled into short center field as Theriot slid home ahead of Austin Jackson's throw.
