The Giants joined the 1985 Kansas City Royals, who erased 3-1 deficits in both the ALCS and World Series, as the only winners of six consecutive elimination games in a single postseason. ... Matt Cain became the fourth pitcher ever to win the All-Star Game and a postseason Game 7 in the same season. ... Scutaro's six multi-hit games against the Cardinals are a championship series record for either league. ... The Giants became the second team in history to have starting pitchers drive in runs in three consecutive games (Zito, Vogelsong, Cain), joining 1970 Orioles. ... The Cardinals' Carlos Beltran recorded his 11th career postseason stolen base in the first inning, the most in MLB history without being thrown out.
