Sergio Romo saves his first postseason game against the Reds

The San Francisco Giants accomplished something no other National League team has ever done. After losing the first two games of the NLDS, the Giants came back to win the series. 

What made it even more impressive was that they did it winning three straight on the road in Cincinnati. The Reds have excellent firepower on offense, as well as some strong pitching. They also have the top ranked relief corps in the National League.

Yet somehow, the Giants won Game 3 by a score of 2-1, even though they managed just three hits. They shook off their funk in Game 4, scoring eight runs to tie the series and set up an epic matchup between Matt Cain and Mat Latos. 

This was a thrilling game, one for the ages. After scoring six runs in the fifth inning, the Giants survived the final 15 outs and hung on to win.

The Reds had men on base and were threatening in every inning, whittling down a six-run deficit to two in the ninth inning. Sergio Romo allowed a run in the ninth inning, but was able to retire Jay Bruce and Scott Rolen with the tying runners on and the winning run at the plate.

Let's take a look at the top five clutch moments in the Giants' amazing comeback.
