The San Francisco Giants did what nobody thought they would, beat Atlanta and Philadelphia to become National League champions.

The two teams nobody picked to get to the World Series will be participating. The Texas Rangers and the Giants will square off on Wednesday in San Francisco. The series will match the Giants, who are deep in pitching against the Rangers who have speed and power.

Juan Uribe hit a tiebreaking home run off Ryan Madsen in the eighth inning and San Francisco held off the Philadelphia 3-2 Saturday night in Game 6 of the National League championship series. The Giants win 4 games to 2.

Phillies slugger Ryan Howard was called out on strikes with runners at first and second to end the game. Giants closer Brian Wilson had a five-out save.

San Francisco overcame a 2-0 first inning deficit, tied it in the third and went ahead when Uribe hit an opposite-field drive that barely cleared the fence in right-field.

Benches cleared in the third inning after San Francisco starter Jonathan Sanchez hit Chase Utley with a pitch and then yelled at him for tossing the ball back towards the mound on his way to first base. There were no punches or ejections, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy pulled the iritated Sanchez from the game.

The Philadelphia Phillies showed Thursday night why they’re the top team in the National League.

Staving off elimination, the Phillies scored three runs in the third inning off Giants ace pitcher Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay, not pitching at his best but good enough to escape a couple of jams to stay in the game six innings despite a slight groin pull.

The Phillies beat San Francisco 4-2 at AT&T Park in Game 5 of the National League championship series.

The Giants blew a golden chance to close out the series at home, but now has to try and wrap it in always-tough Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

With a sore left wrist, Juan Uribe hit a game-ending sacrifice fly off reliever Roy Oswalt with one out in the ninth inning and the San Francisco Giants moved to within one win of the 2010 World Series by defeating the Philadelphia Phillies 6-5 Wednesday night in the National League championship series.

The Giants leadsĀ  3-1 in the best-of-seven series.

By using Oswalt to begin the ninth inning, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel kept to his word that Game 4 was the team’s biggest of the season. Oswalt is a starter who beat the Giants in Game 2. He has pitch in relief before, but not on a regular basis.

Major-league saves leader Brian Wilson pitched a perfect ninth to get the win.

Pitcher Roy Oswalt did it all for the Phillies in Game 2 Sunday night.

He was an ace on the mound, a pesky hitter at the plate and ran the bases like a speedster.

Oswalt pitched 8 brilliant innings, shortstop Jimmy Rollins drove in four runs as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Francisco giants 6-1 Sunday night to even up the National League championship series at one game each.

The Phillies got some inspiration during the pre-game festivities when former Phillies outfielder and current broadcaster Gary Matthews, the 1983 NLCS MVP, threw out the first pitch.

A former Houston Astros ace, Oswalt allowed one run on three hits and struck out nine. He also singled using one of Jimmy Rollins’ bats and scored a run after racing through a coach’s stop sign in the seventh inning.

Rollins broke out of a 1-for-15 postseason slump, going 2 for 3 with a bases-loaded walk and a bases-clearing double.

The Giants struck out 10 times total in the game, but Cody Ross connected for his third homer in two games.

There was a crowd of 46,099 on hand for the 135th straight sellout at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

Tim Lincecum outpitched Roy Halladay.

But the big hero was Cody Ross, who belted a pair of homers leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 1 of their National League Championship series Saturday night in Philadelphia.

The two marquee pitchers never pitched the way they did in the division series. Both gave up homers to the number 8 batter in each lineup.

Lincecum, who pitched a two-hitter against Atlanta, gave up three runs on homers to Jayson Werth and Carlos Ruiz in seven innings.

Halladay, pitching on nine days rest, allowed four runs and eight hits in seven innings.
