And it's all come down to this.
In his second inning of relief, trying to preserve a two-run deficit, Neftali Feliz looked absolutely stellar in the top of the ninth. He was able to strike out Juan Uribe leading off on three pitches, the last being a slider low and out of the zone.
The next batter was Aubrey Huff, and he fell behind in the count 1-2 before rolling an easy grounder to second base for the second out.
The final batter was Pat Burrell, and as he's done so often in these playoffs, he struck out, swinging and missing three times against Feliz. Feliz kept the Giants off the board through two innings of work, allowing only an infield single.

Lincecum probably still had some gas, but this is Wilson's job, and he's pretty good at it.
