‘‘We were hoping for a water shot,’’ Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt said, ‘‘but he got a lousy single. Kind of killed the whole deal for us.’’
NOTES: Jhonny Peralta hit a two-run homer for the Tigers in the ninth off reliever George Kontos. ... This was the Giants’ 50th World Series win. ... The team hosting the first two games has won 21 of the last 26 World Series: the exceptions were Toronto (1992), the Yankees (1999), Florida (2003), St. Louis (2006) and Philadelphia (2008).
