The San Francisco Giants have ended 56 years of heartbreak winning their first world series of baseball since 1954 after downing the Texas Rangers 3-1 in Texas to take the best of seven series 4-1.

The Giants pitchers set the stage for the Californians with a superb finals display including several shutouts to give their fans the moment they've been waiting for more than half a century.
