The Giants did the improbable by stealing three straight road games to win the NLDS.

Improbable comeback, completed.

The San Francisco Giants rallied from two games down by winning three straight road games to advance to the NLCS.

Just four wins away from a return to the World Series, the Giants have a few reasons why they will represent the National League in the Fall Classic.

After a 9-0 loss in Game 2, the Giants faced a nearly insurmountable task of beating the Reds three straight times on the road. The Reds hadn’t lost three straight home games all season, but somehow it happened.

It must be October.

San Francisco got quality outings from Ryan Vogelsong and Tim Lincecum while Matt Cain redeemed himself with a 5 2/3 inning performance to give the Giants the series win.

Cincinnati was left scratching their heads. Posting a 50-31 home record during the regular season, the Reds' season ended with an epic collapse. The Reds now prepare for a long offseason of questions and speculation while the Giants prepare for their NLCS opponent―either Washington or St. Louis.

In the mean time, San Francisco is preparing for a return trip to the World Series, the first since winning it all in 2010.

Here is why they will represent the National League in the 2012 Fall Classic.
