    San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee announced Wednesday evening that the city will hold a victory parade for the Giants on Friday following the team's Game 7 World Series victory against the Kansas City Royals.

    Lee congratulated the Giants for their third World Series win in five years.

    "…This world-class organization brought our city together as only our hometown heroes can," Lee said in a statement.

    "San Francisco waits with giant anticipation for the return of our hometown team so we can celebrate as one city with a parade down Market Street to welcome them home," he said.

    Beginning at noon, the 2014 World Series champs will snake through San Francisco at noon starting at Market and Steuart Streets and continuing down Market Street to Civic Center Plaza.

    The parade is scheduled to start at noon at Market and Steuart Streets and continue down Market Street to Civic Center Plaza.

    The Giants defeated the Royals 3-2 in Kansas City, with Madison Bumgarner throwing five shutout innings after two stellar starts earlier in the World Series.

    Both teams scored twice in the second inning and Michael Morse hit a broken-bat RBI single in the fourth to score Pablo Sandoval with what proved to be the winning run. Sandoval reached base all four times in the game.

    The team's World Series-clinching wins in 2010 and 2012 also came on the road.
