With their 9-0 victory in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series, the San Francisco Giants now move on to face the Detroit Tigers in the 2012 World Series.

The Giants, who defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, became the seventh MLB team ever to overcome a three games to one deficit in a LCS and now shift their attention to Game 1 against the Tigers in San Francisco on Wednesday night.

The Tigers, who will open the series on the West Coast because the NL won this year's All-Star Game, didn't play the Giants this season. But, excluding the 2006 World Series, the Tigers have dominated interleague play the last few seasons.

The Giants have won six games when facing elimination this postseason and are riding a lot of momentum coming into the World Series, but the Tigers are coming off a sweep of the New York Yankees and have only lost two games in the playoffs this year.
