History



The St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants have met twice in the Championship Series and both times the winner went on to lose the World Series in seven games.

The first of these meetings was in 1987 in a series that went seven games and ended in favour of the Cardinals.

Giants outfielder Jeff Leonard homered in each of the first four games and became just the third player in history to win the series MVP for the losing side.

Danny Cox threw a complete game shutout in the deciding game as the Cardinals clinched the series with a 6-0 victory.

The second meeting took place in 2002 with the Giants advancing to the World Series in five games.

Kenny Lofton hit the first pitch he saw in the 9th inning of Game 5 for a walk-off single to send the Giants into the World Series.

Both teams have had recent post-season success. The Giants won the World Series in 2010, while the Cardinals captured the big prize in both 2006 and 2011.
