SAN FRANCISCO (Bleacher Report) — There is nothing quite like the power of a rolling freight train—it just keeps coming, never slowing down and relentless in its pursuit. That may just describe the San Francisco Giants right about now.
The Cardinals got stuck under the wheels of that train, as the Giants powered past them with a dazzling performance from their starting rotation. The Cardinals mustered one run in the final three games of the NLCS as Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong and Matt Cain kept feeding coal into the rolling locomotive.
As a freight train continues along its path, it develops a natural momentum that’s almost impossible to stop. When it reaches full speed, it’s able to effortlessly glide atop the tracks while being fueled by its coal.
For the Giants, their coal is their fans.
