Among the notable wins by the San Francisco Giants franchise are eight World Championships – including three World Series-clinching victories in just five years from 2010 to 2014. The team won the first five as the New York Giants.
The club easily defeated the Texas Rangers 4-1 in 2010 and swept the Detroit Tigers in the 2012 World Series. Pitcher Madison Bumgarner's five scoring innings – with just two days rest – in Game 7 of the 2014 showdown helped propel the team to a series-clinching win on the road against the Kansas City Royals.
Prior to the 1958 season, the club was known as the New York Giants, whose notable wins include five World Series triumphs in 1905, 1921, 1922, 1933 and 1954.
