Juan Uribe hit a tiebreaking homer off Ryan Madson with two outs in the eighth inning and the Giants held off the Phillies 3-2 Saturday night in Game 6 of the NL championship series.



“We had such a diversity of contributions from everybody,” Giants nfl jersey manager Bruce Bochy said. “Not bad for a bunch of castoffs and misfits.”


Ross, the unlikely MVP, and the pitching-rich Giants reached the World Series for the first time since 2002 and will host the Texas Rangers in Game 1 on Wednesday night.


The Giants beat out the San Diego Padres to win the NL West in Game 162. They ended Bobby Cox’s managerial  mlb jerseys career with a first-round win over the Atlanta Braves, and now will try for their first championship since moving to San Francisco in 1958.


“I’m speechless, just breathless,” Giants general manager Brian Sabean said. “It’s a great opportunity to see what we can do on a bigger stage.”


Slumping Phillies slugger Ryan Howard looked at a called third strike — a 90 mph slider at the knees — with runners nfl jersey on first and second to end it. Wilson got the last five outs for his third save of the series, finishing off the Phillies’ bid to become the first NL team in 66 years to win three straight pennants.


The sellout crowd fell silent while players jumped around and hugged each other on the field. A small contingent of Giants fans lingered for a bit behind the visitors’ dugout and cheered loudly.


“Right now it’s heaven, but it was torture for that final strike,” Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff said.
