Giants Vs. Phillies, NLCS Game 6: Brian Wilson Enters, Gets Giants Out Of Jam

In the bottom of the 8th of Game 6, the Phillies looked ready to erase the deficit created minutes ago by the Giants' Juan Uribe and his solo home run. Down 3-2, Shane Victorino and Raul Ibanez were on second and first, respectively, with one out. And they did this off Tim Lincecum, the Giants' ace and postseason hero, who was coming off short rest in an unfamiliar relief position.

Brian Wilson, the Giants' everyday closer, entered in his stead to elicit an inning-ending double play from Carlos Ruiz. Ruiz struck the ball well, but it fell right into Aubrey Huff's glove, and Victorino was doubled off.

The Giants are now only three outs away from the National League title. Stay tuned to this StoryStream for details.
