The Giants franchise has won eight World Series. The first five were when the team was in New York (1905, 1921, 1922, 1933 and 1954). In the San Francisco era since 1958, the Giants won the 2010 World Series in five games over the Texas Rangers. They swept the Detroit Tigers in four games in the 2012 World Series. Two years later, they won the 2014 Fall Classic in seven games over the Kansas City Royals.
It was the quintessential intraleague rivalry, dating back to the late 19th century. Both teams played in the National League and both played in New York City in stadiums not far from each other. In the early years of the 20th century, the Giants were the more prestigious teams with numerous pennants, World Series appearances and world championships. The balance of power shifted in the 1940s and 1950s when the Dodgers broke the color line with Jackie Robinson and launched several challenges to the New York Yankees in the World Series. After the 1947 season, the two teams moved from the East Coast to the West Coast, with the Dodgers settling in Los Angeles and the Giants putting down roots in San Francisco. It is still among baseball's great rivalries, although the fortunes of the two teams have been up and down in recent years.
