Giants Stun the Cardinals 9-0 and Advance to the World Series
The San Francisco Giants routed the St. Louis Cardinals 9-0 in Game Seven of the National League Championship Series on Monday to complete a stunning comeback and advance to the World Series against the Detroit Tigers.
The Giants, the 2010 World Series winners, trailed last year’s champion Cardinals 3-1 in the best-of-seven series but ran off three straight victories by a combined score of 20-1 to win the National League championship four games to three.
San Francisco will host the Detroit Tigers, who swept the New York Yankees to win the AL pennant, in the first two games of the World Series which begins on Wednesday.
