WATCH: Staind Singer Botches Nat'l Anthem Before World Series Game

Lewis has since apologized on Facebook, saying his nerves got the best of him.
"All I can say is I'm sorry and ask for the Nation's forgiveness. My nerves got the best of me and I am completely torn up about what happened. America is the greatest country in the world. The Star-Spangled Banner means so much to so many, including myself. I hope everyone can understand the intensity of the situation and my true intent of this performance. I hope that the Nation, Major League Baseball and the many fans of our national pastime can forgive me," said Lewis.
The pre-game festivities also included a heartwarming moment as Robin Williams' son threw out the first pitch, with Billy Crystal on hand.
And in case you missed it, the Giants moved one win away from their third World Series title in five years as ace Madison Bumgarner tossed a four-hit shutout.
