Vote for the Fall Classic's top star
By Doug Miller / MLB.com
But who stood out the most?
A panel of MLB.com experts came up with four nominees for the Note-able World Series Performances presented by Samsung so fans could identify which player will be remembered the most from the Giants' four-game sweep of the Tigers, which brought the City by the Bay its second title in the past three years.
Now your voice can be heard. Read the descriptions below and select your most Note-able Performance.
Sergio Romo, closer: Romo had a dominant postseason, putting up a 0.84 ERA, but he was at his best in the Fall Classic, appearing in three games -- 2, 3 and 4 -- and saving all of them. He pitched three innings, all of them perfect, and struck out five batters. It was fitting that he was the last man on the mound when San Francisco claimed the World Series title.
Buster Posey, catcher: Not a bad career this guy is having. Both of his healthy seasons have ended in World Series titles, and that's no coincidence. Posey came up big once again in this World Series, catching four consecutive wins for his starting pitchers and hitting a big two-run homer in Game 4.
Tim Lincecum, pitcher: "The Freak" fit right in with the team concept by gladly accepting a temporary bullpen role for the postseason, and it worked wonders, particularly in the four games against the Tigers. Lincecum served as a perfect bridge between the starter and the back end of the bullpen in his two games, pitching scoreless ball over 4 2/3 innings and striking out eight.
Pablo Sandoval, third baseman: The first game said most of it, if not all. "Kung Fu Panda" made history by belting three home runs in Game 1 to cap a 4-for-4 night, and he ended up hitting .500 for the World Series, forever etching his name into October lore.
