For four and a half innings, Game 6 of the NLCS was locked in a 2-2 tie. It is no longer, thanks to Juan Uribe's solo home run that just managed to clear the right-field fence.
Uribe's homer, off Ryan Madsen, has brought the Giants into a 3-2 lead, and only six outs from a trip to the World Series. If the score holds, it would be courtesy of an unlikely source, as Uribe is only 2-for-25 in the 2010 postseason. Not counted in that 2-for-25, of course, is the sacrifice fly that helped deliver a win for the Giants in Game 4 of this series.
The Giants are separated from a World Series appearance by only a few outs. Stay tuned to this StoryStream for further updates.
