SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The celebration in San Francisco's streets over the Giants' World Series victory turned raucous and violent, with two people injured by gunfire and a third stabbed. Police got pelted with bottles as they tried to disperse crowds.
The partying unfolded peacefully Wednesday night with fans gathering in the streets and uncorking champagne, dancing and hugging strangers after their team won its third championship in five years with a 3-2 victory over Kansas City in the winner-take-all seventh game.
"I knew they were going to win. It's the Giants. They do this all the time," San Francisco native Barbra Norris, 54, said of the team's odds-defying victory in Kansas City the night after a 10-0 loss.
