Giants beats Phillies, advances to World Series

By on Oct 24, 2010 in Baseball, Sports Comments
It was a sweet come from behind victory for the San Francisco Giants as they sweat it out to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies, 3-2, in Game 6 of the NL Championship Series.

The Giants win was sealed off by Juan Uribe‘s tiebreaking homer against Ryan Madson with two outs in the eighth inning. It was a collective team effort for the Giants as they now try to win San Francisco‘s first crown in the World Series. This is the first time that San Francisco will play in the World Series since 2002.

The Giants, seeking their first World Series title since 1954, will now host the Texas Rangers in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday. San Francisco trailed Philadelphia, 0-2 in the first-inning. The Phillies early lead came from an RBI double of Chase Utley and Jayson Werth ‘s sacrifice fly. The Giants tied the game in the third inning and led for the first time in the eight inning, as Uribe hit a winner in the opposite-field drive that almost went through the right-field wall.
