The Giants prevailed in a hard fought series that went the distance. The Diamondbacks picked up a 2-0 win in game one but the Giants were able to come back as postseason MVP Ryan McElrath pitched back-to-back shutouts.
In game one Devin Torres would take the carpet but was forced from the game and brother Garret took over to complete the no-hitter. Garret Torres put the D-Backs ahead with a solo HR in the 4th and Kenny Stengel would add an insurance run in the fifth. Giants 8, D-Backs 0
In game two Ryan McElrath would get things started with a HR to lead off the game and then shut out the D-Backs. Phil Fresiello would put it out of reach with a three run HR in the fourth and Tim McElrath would pitch in with 3 RBI of his own.
In the third and deciding game of the series Ryan McElrath was once again brilliant tossing a second shutout. Dave Fisher would supply power with a run scoring double in the second and a run scoring triple in the fourth. Giants 2, D-Backs 0
