St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Francisco Giants, 2012 NLCS Game 1

8 p.m. ET, Sunday, Oct. 14, FOX

After a thrilling and historical come back to beat the Washington Nationals in a win-or-go-home game, the Cardinals advanced to the National League Championship Series where they'll face the Giants. After losing each of the first two games of their five game series, the Giants came back with three consecutive victories.

In Game 5, Buster Posey hit a grand slam in the top of the fifth inning to jump out in front of the Reds and earn a trip to the NLCS. The Giants will host each of the first two games, before three games in St. Louis and a final two in San Francisco, if necessary.
