San Fran had them right where they wanted them!

Down 3-1 was just what the Dr. ordered as the Giants won their 5th straight elimination game of the postseason last night to force game 7 at home with their ace on the mound....

We get round 2 of Cain vs. Lohse where in the first game the Cardinals won 3-1...that's a little misleading however as the Giants out-hit them 9-6 and left 11 on base vs. 5 for the Cardinals...

Giants bats have woken up a bit in the last 2 games as they've scored 11 runs after totalling just 4 in the previous 2 games...

One thing we know about the Cardinals is that they will never give up after being down 6-0 early in their game 5 against Washington to come all the way back to win 9-7...

If the Cardinals have the lead late it might be over as Jason Motte has been a monster recording a win and 3 saves in 5 postseason appearances..he has twice pitched 2 innings this postseason and should be fully ready to go as he last pitched 5 days ago....

I'm not sure how to play this one as I like both teams in elimination games - LOL....should be a fun one to watch!

Just looked at the weather 60% chance of showers wind blowing out to left-center 10-20 mph....59 degrees...going to be chilly and wet it looks like...let's hope it isn't a night filled with rain delays....

Also be interesting to see what kind of ratings this gets - Fox has to hate going against the debate tonight....

Agree with every word. Took the over, just think if anyone feels the pressure it will probably be the pitchers.
