Thie Giants are in the World Series because of their pitching, and that is no secret. The Giants' starters can go up against any offense on any given day and shut them down.
The real marvel is the Giants' bullpen. If you would have told me that Jonathan Sanchez would be knocked out of Game 6 in the third inning, I would have said there was no way the Giants would win the game, but they did.
Javier Lopez and Jeremy Affeldt looked great as they shut down the Phiilies' offense for the rest of the game. Although Brian WIlson made it interesting by walking two in the ninth, he got the save with a gutsy strikeout against Ryan Howard.
Being able to rely on a bullpen for six-plus innings is a luxury many teams do not have. If the Giants can continue to pitch like they have against the Braves and Phillies, the Giants could be in good shape and have a good chance at shutting down the Rangers' offense.
