Giants vs. Cardinals: Complete Team Grades for NLCS Game 6

Game 6 of the NLCS between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals was a rematch between Ryan Vogelsong of the Giants and Chris Carpenter of the Cardinals.

Vogelsong was dominant in that first matchup, throwing seven strong innings for the Giants' first victory in the series. The Giants were counting on Vogelsong to repeat that performance in a do-or-die Game 6 on Sunday night.

They got just that, as Vogelsong delivered the start of his life with a career-high nine strikeouts while allowing just one run on four hits in seven innings.

With the Giants' 6-1 victory, the NLCS will go to a seventh and deciding game for the ninth time since it expanded to a seven-game format in 1985.

Here are final grades for each team's starter, bullpen, starting lineup and bench.
