NLCS: Vogelsong strikes out nine as Giants force Game 7

AP, SAN FRANCISCO

The 10 unearned runs allowed by the Cardinals are the most in an NLCS, according to STATS, LLC — topping the nine given up by the Braves in 2001 and the Dodgers in 1985.

San Francisco never faced an elimination game in 2010 on the way to winning the World Series, but they had to go the distance in each of their first two post-season series this year.

They became the first team in major league history to come back from a 2-0 deficit to win a best-of-five series by winning three straight on the road as they did at Cincinnati.
