If you are a fan of the Philadelphia Phillies, this isn't really the matchup you wanted. If you're a fan of the San Francisco Giants, this isn't really who you wanted to see. But if you're a fan of great pitching, great matchups and great baseball, well, this is exactly what you wanted to see.

The Giants knocked off the Atlanta Braves in Game 4 of the NLDS on Monday (Bobby Cox, we hardly knew ya) and move on to face the Phillies in the National League Championship Series for a chance to go to the World Series.

The matchup pits one of the best teams in baseball for the last five years against one of the best teams in baseball history. While the Phillies are looking to become the first National League team since the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1940s to make three straight World Series appearances, the Giants haven't been to a World Series since 2002 and are still looking for their first championship since moving to San Francisco.

Here is a look at some of the ins and outs of the upcoming series.
