Giants-Phillies Game 6: San Francisco's Cody Ross Named NLCS MVP
Though he went just 1-for-4 in Saturday night's Game 6 win, Giants outfielder Cody Ross has been named the NLCS MVP.
The 29-year-old hit .350 in the series against the Phillies, bashing three home runs and six extra-base hits in leading the often quiet Giants offense into the World Series.
Ross, who was basically cast off from the Florida Marlins earlier in the season, was acquired by the Giants via a waiver claim on Aug. 22, and proceeded to fight his way into the lineup.
And he didn't disappoint against the Phillies, hitting two bombs off Roy Halladay in San Francisco's Game 1 win and hitting another in Game 2 off Roy Oswalt.
Ross is the fourth San Francisco Giant to win the award, following Benito Santiago (in 2002), Will Clark (1989) and Jeffrey Leonard (1987).
