ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Bleacher Report) — Where does one start equal more than 33? How does one single game redeem an entire season? The answer to those riddles lies in the postseason.

A St. Louis victory would mean the defending World Champions would be one win from returning to the World Series. Giants manager Bruce Bochy is handing the ball to the Freak, Lincecum, to save the series.
