Giants Win NL Pennant

The crazy ride the Giants have taken us all on in 2010 is going to the World Series, and the Giants have a legit shot at bringing home the first world championship in San Francisco team history.

First off, I'm in full celebration mode, so this post won't be a long one... Jonathan Sanchez wasn't on his game Saturday night, but just about everybody else on the Giants pitching staff, starters included, were. Both Jeremy Affeldt and Madison Bumgarner's performances out of the pen was what saved the game in my opinion. The Phills had the momentum going off Sanchez early, but Affeldt, then Bumgarner righted the ship and shut Philly down. Once again the Giants found themselves in a tie game going into the later innings, and as they've done so many times in this postseason, they found a way to get it done. Juan Uribe showed why the Giants fans are so found of him in San Francisco, even though he hit just .248 in the regular season. The dude comes up with clutch hits, and often, they leave the yard. He did that against Madson on Saturday night to give the Giants the 3-2 lead, and once they got that lead, I think this team was hellbent on keeping it.

Bochy even sent out Tim Lincecum in the bottom of the 8th in order to preserve the 1-run lead, and although Lincecum gave up 2 hits, he did strikeout a batter, and managed to get the ball to Brian Wilson and the NL Saves leader, once again, came through. It was another tight-rope walk by Wilson, as he allowed 2 runners to reach base in the 9th before sitting Ryan Howard down on a backdoor slider to end the game. Now, standing between the Giants and their first world championship in San Francisco are the Texas Rangers. We'll have much more on this series as well as World Series preivews in the upcoming days, but for now, time to enjoy this victory!

    Is there any information on the Giants' return flight to SFO? Would love to bring the kids out to greet the misfits

    Lincecum has proven his one of the elite pitchers in baseball only a few years into his career. To already possess 2 Cy Young's is very impressive considering his stature. The matchup of Lincecum vs Lee is incredible.
