Fall 2014 Day 20 and Last:
On Wednesday 29 October, the San Francisco Giants visited and defeated the Kansas City Royals 3-runs-2 to win the 2014 World Series 4-games-3. So it is that the MLB Giants join the NBA San Antonio Spurs and the NHL Los Angeles Kings as best-of-7 playoff champions in 2014.

Home Teams in Final Game 7s:
The 2014 World Series Game 7 victory by the San Francisco Giants in Kansas City breaks a nine-Game 7 winning streak by the home team in the World Series. In best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL Finals Game 7s, home teams achieved an 18-Game 7 winning streak, starting when the Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers in St. Louis to win the 1982 World Series, and ending when the Red Wings lost in Detroit to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2009 NHL Finals. Beginning with the 2009 NHL Finals and extending through the just-concluded 2014 World Series, home teams have a 3-3 record in best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL Finals Game 7s.

Big Victory Margins:
The sum of the victory margins for the 2014 World Series was 35 runs, which is the third-largest in best-of-7 World Series (42 runs, by the 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Yankees; 41 runs, by the 1968 Detroit Tigers and St. Louis Cardinals).

WLLWWLW:
The win order for the victorious San Francisco Giants in the 2014 World Series was WLLWWLW: The 2014 World Series thus becomes the third MLB Finals-round series, the third MLB series (all rounds), and the 18th MLB/NBA/NHL series (all rounds) to follow that win order to completion. The only other two MLB teams to win a best-of-7 MLB playoff series through a WLLWWLW win order were the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1960 World Series and the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1964 World Series, fifty years ago.
