And while one California team fell apart on the road, the Giants secured another go at the NLCS with timely hitting and wild pitching at home. The Nationals anemic offense, with the exception of the brilliant Bryce Harper, and their Dodgeresque bad bullpen, were no match for Bruce Bochy’s boys of summer. The Giants played big league small ball, and got some flashy leather work from Hunter Pence who made an insane catch against the wall in right field. Looking forward to their rematch with the Cardinals who they schooled in 2012, by rallying back from a 3-1 deficit.
