San Francisco Giants advance to the World Series

It's going to be a Royals-Giants showdown at the World Series, after San Francisco notched a fourth win against the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series on Thursday night. The 6-3 win capped off a pretty impressive comeback for the Giants, after a mediocre season. The 2010 and 2012 World Series champs will face a Kansas City team that hasn't lost a game yet in the postseason, hasn't made it to the World Series since 1985, and has Paul Rudd on its side.
