SF Giants Starting Pitching Creates Path To Game 7 Of NLCS
This is going to be an exciting game for the ages! Cain vs. Lohse in game 7 of the 2012 NLCS. I pick the Giants to win and I want the Giants to win, but the big irony that is coming into play here is that these two teams are the most recent World Series Champs! Will the Cards have a chance to defend? Or will the Giants deny them and attempt to create a dynasty of their own? What are your thoughts???

The path the San Francisco Giants took from being down 3-1 to the St. Louis Cardinals to forcing a Game 7 was led by pitchers Barry Zito in Game 5, Ryan Vogelsong in Game 6, and will be finished by Matt Cain in Game 7.
This NLCS comeback started with redemption, was followed by inspiration, and is anchored by perfection. Zito, Vogelsong, and Cain.
The starting pitching has set the tone for the team during this postseason. At times when they were unable to manage to make it to the sixth inning, the team struggled with them and looked like their life in this postseason was dwindling.
As the Cardinals were on the verge of eliminating San Francisco, Zito came in, pitched the game of his life, and revived the team as they were close to gasping for just a few more breaths of postseason air.
