SAN FRANCISCO (Bleacher Report) — The St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants overcame different obstacles on their way to the National League Championship Series.
For the Cardinals, the offense had to come alive to finish off the Washington Nationals, who were the winning-est team in the National League. The Giants had to quiet the powerful bats of the Cincinnati Reds.
Now these teams will meet to determine who will represent the National League in the World Series.
