re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
Cardinals hit the ball 7 times and had 4 walks on top of that, it was their RISP hitting which wasn't there. I'd give credit to the Giants infield for playing a stellar game, unlike the Cardinals infield which once again made embarrassing mistakes. On top of that our offense was just on last night, scoring runs against 4 different Cardinals pitchers. Giants played better in every facet of the game over the last 3 in the series. This was a well-deserved NLCS victory.
Joe Buck and co. want to harp on the Cardinals comeback victory against Washington, but I don't think that's even comparable to being down 0-2 in the NLDS to the Reds with the final 3 games being played on the road, and getting the job done. Or being down 3-1 in the NLCS with your regular season aces (Cain and Bumgarner) struggling, and somehow winning 3 straight AGAIN to advance. I'd prefer we commanded a series from the start, but if you want to talk about a resilient team and a true comeback story, the 2012 Giants blow the Cardinals away completely in that regard.
