Path to the NLCS NLDS:San Francisco over Atlanta (3 games to 1); Philadelphia over Cincinnati (3 games to 0)
Close ballgames were the story in this series that went six games, with the Phillies actually outscoring the Giants, 20-19. Three games were decided by one run, one by two, one by three and one by five.
Game 4 was the thriller, with the teams going back and forth at AT&T Park until Juan Uribe delivered the game-winning sacrifice fly in the ninth inning off Philadelphia���s Roy Oswalt.
Tim Lincecum made three appearances (two starts) for the Giants, striking out 16 and scattering five earned runs on 12 hits over 14 1/3 innings.
